Below: The oldest complete Aveling & Porter engine left – built in 1871 and on display at the Science Museum. There are older remains – watch our plans for Beamish’s September Great North Steam Fair for more on this!
Below: The LT Museum has recently been refurbished. The amount of material incorporated is less than before but the exhibitions and interpretation is excellent.
Below: The horse tram is much more effectively displayed and the interactives are very effective.
