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.

Bill removing redundant conduit from the carriage shed
Colin & Geoff painting the roof of a container

Bill & Dave staying a wall section on site
The team figuring out how to handle a quarter ton wall section .....
