A No.5 in Consett and at Beamish

17th February 2010

On Saturday we took A No.5 (on loan from Tyne & Wear Museums Stephenson Railway Museum site) to Consett, then brought it to Beamish (its former owner!) where it is on display at the station. As seen elsewhere in this blog we have borrowed Bowes’ Planet diesel to shunt the engine into the RMS every day (we don’t leave it out overnight!).
