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.

Tomorrow's Trains

Tomorrow is Branch Line Day.   No. 2 will head trains from Andrews House at 10.30 am, 11.50 am, 1.15 pm & 2.35 pm for Sunniside, Causey, East Tanfield & return.
Update - Twizell, not No.2, was in use, due to the train being heavier with party bookings.
