Beamish - Roads And Rails 6/7

Beamish - The Living Museum Of The North - Part 1

Away from the area where I saw the Puffing Billy replica (see Wednesday) there are two other quite interesting railway areas. At the top is the yard area next to the Coal Mine, which comes complete with pithead gear etc. Below is the railway depot at the 1900's town which comes complete with railway station, engine shed and workshop and other railway style buildings. On gala days they have trains running on what is quite a long length of track.

both are fascinating images but i think i like the bottom right more, Brian. good to visit these places on a gala then.
Brian Walbey: They do have a lot of galas at this place during the year.

It seems a lot of effort has been put into making this a very interesting place, Brian.
Brian Walbey: This is just one small corner ray, I'm doing a short series on this area later on.
Lots of good stuff, Brian, with what, I believe, is a saddle tank engine.
Brian Walbey: Indeed a saddle tank, more about that in a few weeks time.
They seem to have done a real nice job with this place, Brian!
Brian Walbey: This is just one small area Elizabeth, the whole museum covers 350 acres with several distinct parts to it and really needs two days to see everything properly.

Just as life used to be but a lot less grimy
Brian Walbey: I suppose, in all reality, withh all these type of places it is all there except the grime.
They have clearly added a lot to Beamish since we went there
Brian Walbey: I reckon one really needs two days to enjoy all there is to be seen.
