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.

Malcolm unfastening Horden's cab floor
Barry & Brian fixing a guide along a line of distortion
Brian part cutting the plate to relieve the distortion
Ian delivering plate for Horden's smokebox bottom .....
..... & taking coal to Andrews House
Catherine helping John in his quest to install a larger electrical feed to the workshop
Vic's been cutting grass
The leaky section of pipe has been replaced,
restoring water to Andrews House
