Did you know? Tanfield Waggonway was 4' gauge; Hawks Waggonway (Gateshead) 4'3"; Wylam Waggonway used 5' gauge; Willington Waggonway 4'8", hence Killingworth Waggonway 4'8" & from there the Stephensons' influence spread to Hetton, the S&DR, the L&MR, across Britain & the world.

Anything more you'd like to reveal about those developments? :-)

As a joint project of the Trust & TR Co, in line with requests from the commercial manager, but with an eye to future developments, we're moving the public toilets from Marley Hill shed to adjoin the carriage shed. At the same time we'll add a small room for canteen staff & double commercial storage space - to remove clutter from the carriage shed. This is a relatively small project, so should not impinge massively on repairs & developments outside at ET, while providing some covered work during winter.
