Dave Hewitt’s Twizell photographs

12th May 2010

A few more images of Twizell, which has returned to service on the Tanfield Railway following a lengthy and extensive restoration. There are also a couple of photos showing the engine during its working days at Morrison Busty colliery, Annfield Plain, and at Beamish in August 1979 – proof that despite what some of the railway magazines claim, it has worked before in preservation! It was used at Beamish as a static boiler for some years, but also ran for a few seasons at Rowley Station – as the second photograph shows.
