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.

What do you mean by, "MH," as in "MH toilets?" Should that be "AH (Andrew's House?)"

MH = Marley Hill
AH = Andrews House
CA = Causey Arch
ET = East Tanfield

MH toilets are at the side of the loco shed, but we're replacing these with new ones at the side of the carriage shed.
