Everyday work, people & events at the World's Oldest Railway 1725 Industrial Steam Rail Heritage in Tyneside North East England
Did you know? Marley Hill Colliery opened & closed twice, so we have two railways at Marley Hill. From the early 1700s until closure in 1815 the Tanfield Waggonway conveyed its coal. Reopened in 1841 & closed in 1983, the Bowes Railway carried its produce.
