Courtesy of John Hinson, I have added a new section under ‘The Real Location’ called ‘Signalling’ to which I have added a copy of the signalling diagram for the junction from 1963.
Added before and after photos of the bridge at the Washington end of the junction.
Added 2 new pics to the Photographs section of the last passenger train to Consett in March 1984.
Added 5 new pictures to the Photographs section.
Added an introduction to the proposed model of the junction.
Added some additional pictures to the ‘Then & Now’ section.
Added a very brief history of the real location.
New posts added to the Then & Now section showing the remains of buffer stops, cable support posts and the NCB shed at Stella Gill.
Welcome to my new site where I will chronicle the construction of a model railway based on South Pelaw Junction on the Tyne Dock to Consett line.
