From Craig Oliphant a couple of photos taken at South Pelaw showing a train of track panels recovered from the closed branch to Washington. The track would be reused elsewhere on the network. Some of it, I believe, ended up on the line to Whitby.
Three photos from Tony Lambert of iron ore trains at South Pelaw on the EM Gauge layout of the location.
A selection of photos around Consett Steelworks in 1984 from Roy Lambeth.
