Heritage weekend at Tanfield Railway

Tanfield Railway Sept 15 (13)

The world's longest running steam railway is right on our doorstep. The Tanfield Railway dates back to the start of the industrial revolution as a steam powered rail system and goes back even further as a horse drawn wooden railway. On 11-12 September, a number of heritage sites in the area had open days as part of Heritage Weekend. I spent 12th September at the Tanfield Railway, running a stand for the Sunniside History Society. It also gave the the chance to look behind he scenes at the locomotive workshop which was fascinating.
