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.

Are Horden and HC No.38 the same locomotive?

No, although they are currently both in bits & being rebuilt. Horden could be in use in 2020, HC 38 is likely to be a little later.

See the main TR web for details of Horden & HC 38
