DL No. 10, Seaham Harbour, 2nd August 1965
Ex-Dorman Long's 0-4-0ST (OC) No. 10, (Hawthorn Leslie No. 3352 of 1918), potters about in the yard at Seaham Harbour, on Monday 2nd August 1965. Acquired in 1963 it was scrapped in March 1967. The "main line" of the former Rainton & Seaham Railway disappears behind the engine to a level-crossing over the road to head west between North Railway Street and South Railway Street, though by this time only as far as Seaham Colliery. There was also a rope-worked incline down to the docks from Seaham Colliery, about where the white fencing can be seen. The rather grandiose building to the right of the loco, with part of its clock tower just visible, is the Londonderry Offices, HQ of the Londonderry Collieries, Docks and other industrial interests. Built in 1857, by this time it had become the local Police HQ and was converted into housing in 2006, now known as Marquess Point. Slide No. 1519.
