Did you know? In 1886 Durham coal owners forced the NER to give them a direct route to the Tyne at Dunston, avoiding the bottleneck at Tyne Dock.

Easter Sunday

Dan flagging us away from Sunniside
Logan uncoupling at East Tanfield
Logan & Luke watering Twizell at Andrews House
No.2 leaving Andrews House, with Twizell & train on the left
Heading for Causey & East Tanfield
Stuart repanelling another door of the woodwork shed
On the inside, Tommy shortening bolts
The bishop keeping an eye on proceedings
Rod making the afternoon teas on No.7
Ben manning the crossing
Logan at the East Tanfield ground frame as Twizell runs round its train
Luke driving Twizell
Angela & Steve on No.2 passing Twizell at Andrews House
Punch & Judy in Andrews House waiting room
The Ran Tanners entertaining
Now, that's a cake
Luke & Matthew exchanging tokens
Logan & Luke running Twizell round the train at Sunniside
Passing No.2 on return to Andrews House
Dan flagging us away from Causey
Ian coaling Twizell in readiness for tomorrow
