The Tanfield Railway hosted a "Legends of Industry" weekend which involved a Photographers' evening on the Friday and then an expanded timetable of trains over the following two days. In addition there were visiting locomotives, steam road vehicles, and a vintage car rally. It was a very well organised affair, and I appreciated the fact that most of the railway volunteer staff wore period costume. I could have taken many more photographs, but had foolishly taken a flat spare camera battery with me, so had to draw proceedings to a premature close!
