Tanfield Legends of Industry Gala

The Tanfield Railway Gala starts on the Friday night with a Photographers' evening and then there are two days of frantic activity on the railway with passenger, mixed and coal trains running. This year they imported two engines, the LNER J72 tank seen above, and a Manning Wardle cabless 0-6-0 tank, while the recently restored local Stephenson tank Twizell was in good form. Other attractions included a vintage vehicle display, model boats, a fairground organ and a group playing country music.
