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.

ET Again

Jim working on an oil pot
Brian drilling a coupling rod knuckle pin for Horden
Geoff painting his toilets
Rob letting the works train through Causey Crossing
Steve, Dave & Bill  fencing the work site at East Tanfield
Steve & Bill cable tying the sections together
The last piece goes into place
Dave & Steve working on the temporary props for the platform edge
Bill & Rob reducing trip hazards on the platform
Coping stones being removed
Breaking away faulty blockwork
Dave checking check rail keys at Engine Curve .....
..... on the way back to Marley Hill
