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.

Thanks very much for a brilliant visit to Tanfield on Monday.

Malcolm was an excellent guide, showing me around the site and providing loads of information and history, and could not have been more helpful with my requests. Then allowing me to wander around at my own pace seeing all of your locos and stock.

It was my mistake to not ask whether there was anything in the narrow gauge shed, i will just have to come back another time to have a look in there.

Thanks again for a great visit.
