Doug, if you get over after this odd period of our lives has ended please get in touch and I will arrange a tour for you. Best time is in April as they usually have a four day transport gala. Visiting locomotives, trams, cars and motorcycles, traction engines and lorries. Some of the cars and lorries are steam driven and all have to be in the time span around 1913. Always something happening at weekends and the sumer months though. Will also arrange a visit to Tanfield Railway which is two miles from Beamish and is the oldest railway in the world. In 2025 it will celebrate its 300th anniversary and plans are in place aready for a massive festival.
