Tanfield Railway, County Durham.

11th September 2022

Our train arriving at Andrews House station from the north.

Andrew Barclay 0-6-0ST "Horden" was in charge.

Water being taken at South Tanfield station.

Beautifully restored GNR coaches create a nice period atmosphere.

Water taken, "Horden" runs around its train.

Fireman ready to switch the run round loop points as loco runs forward.

About to couple onto train as passengers return to their carriages.

At Andrews House the loco uncouples and runs forward for water...

...and coal, which looked very small.

Now at the northern extent of the line, Sunniside.

"Horden" runs into the headshunt...

...and then completes its run round to take us back to Andrews House. A great little railway!
