Tanfield No. 3, Marley Hill, 25th February 2018
0-6-0T (IC) Joicey Collieries Railway No. 3 "Twizell" (RS No. 2730 of 1891) climbs away from Andrews House station towards Sunniside with what would normally be an ECS move after the day's running on the Tanfield Railway was over to return the stock to Marley Hill yard. On this occasion a party from the earlier Branch Line Society "Metro Meanderer" had dashed across from South Gosforth to partake in a "micro-tour" to take in the curve from the "main" line to the depot, not normally available to passengers. The engine is about to shut-off before coming to a halt and then reversing, propelling the stock around the curve (hidden behind the train) to Marley Hill platform. 17:19¼, Sunday 25th February 2018, just after sunset. Digital Image No. GMPK4317.
