Sorry for the lack of updates recently but the snow has not let me go to the railway. Check out beamish's transport blog for pics of the museum under a blanket of snow and how they are trying to clear the tramway. The week before the snow came the railway received the former members workshop machines in form of a lathe and a drilling machine. I would imagine that the railway is covered in snow and the only engine that you would be able to run is krokidile which is also engine of the month. The steam engines are going through winter maintenance like chimney cleaning and small adjustments.

Here is the six wheeled Bridget that was displayed in our September exhibition it is going under trails before it is striped down for painting. If the owner paints it blue we could have a Thomas the tank engine on the railway!!!
