First Coal Trains on the Weardale Railway

The privately owned Weardale Railway, running from Stanhope to Bishop Auckland, hopes to begin to ship coal from its Wolsingham depot. Two test trains were run this week to establish the practicality of the idea. The coal is to come from an open cast site near to Tow Law.

The test train passing over Etherley viaduct on its way to, I believe, Scunthorpe.
