It's not all about steam!
This year's Diesel Day sees our home fleet diesel locomotives out and about.
Consett Iron Company locomotive No.10 will be completing demonstration runs in the yard. Our two ex-British Railways shunting locomotives, No. 08915 and D2078, will be hauling the passenger service, as well as taking a demonstration freight train each throughout the day.
The Waggonway Tea Room will be open, serving a range of hot and cold drinks, sandwiches, cakes and tray bakes.
