North Eastern wanderer returns

Early last week saw a new locomotive delivered to Shildon, but not one that is part of the National Collection.

We are establishing a partnership with the Locomotive Conservation and Learning Trust to restore the North Eastern Railway designed J21 0-6-0 tender loco No. 65033, once a long term resident of Beamish museum.

It is planned to get the engine under cover as soon as possible and assess the rebuild programme this year whilst finance is sought. A major strand of the bid is to include the learning potential for both schools and trainees who will work on the project. Donations are of course welcomed, and details can be had on LCLT’s website.

You can find out more about the Locomotive Conservation and Learning Trust at their website.
