A Northumbrian workhorse offering rare passenger rides

On Sunday 11th February, the Tanfield Railway hosts ‘Delivered by Diesel, featuring Tyne Improvement Commission No. 35. This loco was delivered new to the Tyne Improvement Commission (T.I.C.), working on the Northumberland side of the water. the T.I.C. was an organisation devoted to improving the Tyne for shipping and forerunner of the present day Port of Tyne.

If you can, why not pop down for a ride behind a loco which spent from 1958 until 1984 working north of the Tyne?

Yours, RH.
