Last but not least ..... Alan Thompson was interviewed for the World at One recently.   His sonorous tones were heard in the show broadcast today, and for nearly 10% of the 45 minutes.   The programme is available on iplayer for 29 days, and may be downloaded from there.   Alan's description of Tanfield Railway is about 40 minutes 30 seconds in.
