    Default 1920 York Holgate Morning Goods

    North East England during the steam era. Circa 1920 at Holgate, York early on a grey morning goods traffic is on the move, making the most of an absence of express passenger trains on the main line to take up track capacity and keep goods traffic moving.




    One of Wilson Worsdell's most powerful 0-6-0s, P3 Class brings a short train of empty coal hoppers on the loop line, heading for the slow down avoiding line.




    The P3 passes beneath the Holgate bridge, taking the chord for the avoiding lines, which will keep it clear of the 1878 main line station.




    One of Sir Vincent Raven's brand new T3 Class 0-8-0 in unlined goods black brings a Class F unfitted freight through Holgate excursion station on the Down Leeds line. Vans from the NER, GWR and NBR are at the head of the train with a boiler tube on a three-set of NER 8 Ton single bolster wagons behind. The Robinson designed 2-8-0s built for the War Department during WWI would soon find a home on these duties along the ECML, classed as O4 during the LNER period. The price of the war surplus 2-8-0s fell sharply during the 1920s and is an enduring mystery why a second order of ten T3 0-8-0s was built during 1924 (as Class Q7), bringing the total to fifteen locos. While they were 3-cylinder engines and powerful, their axle loading kept them out of colliery exchange sidings, a territory comfortably occupied by T/T1 Class (Q5) and T2 Class (Q6) locomotives. It would be twenty years before they found the job for which they were most suited, hauling iron ore trains from Tyne Dock to Consett. Their "time in the sun" on that would be relatively short though. Sharing the task with the Thompson O1 (rebuilds of their nemesis the O4s) through the late 1940s and early 1950s the mid 1950s heralded the arrival of the BR Standard 9F 2-10-0s at Tyne Dock.

    Default 1920 - The view from Holgate

    North East England during the steam era. Remaining at Holgate near York station one of Sir Vincent Raven's S3 Class 4-6-0s brings in an express passenger train from the south. While it comprises non-corridor stock, including a core set of arc roof carriages it is the stopping pattern which determines how it is treated. A strengthening Third Class carriage has been added outside the end brake carriage and a six-wheel van placed at the head of the train. Whether either, both or neither of these is removed on arrival at York depends on the carriage roster.

    Default 1949 Darlington Forge Crossing - Trip Working

    North East England during the steam era. Circa 1949 at Darlington Forge Crossing a veteran J77 0-6-0T draws the afternoon trip working over the crossing bound for Croft Yard.







    A tubular screen is one load on a 10 Ton Double Bolster while a three-set made up of 8 Ton single bolster wagons is carrying a tubular load. The N.E.R. built several thousand single bolster wagons to diagram D1 from the 1880s, with many upgraded over the years to 10 Tons. Quite a few made it to nationalisation. They often ran in sets of three, with the load secured to the bolsters on the outer wagons and the centre wagon acting as a match wagon with the bolster swung out to one side.

    Default 1920 - S3 Class on Mixed Traffic at Ferryhill

    North East England during the steam era. Sir Vincent Raven introduced his 3-cylinder S3 Class 4-6-0 during November 1919 with number 840, the lead member of the class. Sharing the 3-cylinder layout and boiler with his recent T3 0-8-0 the 4-6-0 proved rather rmore successful than the 0-8-0, with seventy examples being built up to 1924. Number 840 was allocated to Heaton shed but circumstances have conspired to allocate her to a partly fitted goods working from Newcastle Forth to York Dringhouses yard. While this would normally be the balliwack of Gateshead shed footplate crew there were occasional forays south by Heaton engines and crews, possibly maintaining route knowledge in the process. The S3 Class became L.N.E.R. Class B16 after the grouping.






    Running through the southern portion of the deep cutting at Ferryhill (the excavation of which nearly bankrupted the Clarence Railway due to it being mostly through solid rock), number 840 on the lines from Tursdale will swing left and take the goods lines to the east of Ferryhill station.

    Default 1920: T Class at work

    North East England during the steam era. By 1900 the ever increasing weight of coal and goods trains on the North Eastern's network prompted Wilson Worsdell to build the company's first eight-coupled tender locomotive, his T Class with piston valves. The piston valve T class were built between 1901 and 1904 while the slide valve fitted T1 Class were built between 1907 and 1911.

    The L.N.E.R. subsequently categorised both the piston valve T Class and slide valve T1 Class 0-8-0s as Class Q5, totalling 90 engines. They evolved an association with heavy freight and mineral work on Tees-side. All were scrapped between 1946 and 1951 with the influx of WD Austerity 2-8-0 "Flying Bedsteads".





    T Class 2116 hauls an early morning goods train south between Kimblesworth Colliery exchange sidings and Newton Hall junction. Number 2116 was the first T Class built, during August 1901 and was allocated to Annfield Plain shed. She was withdrawn from West Hartlepool shed during June 1948 as number 3250, never carrying her allocated BR number, 63250.




    Around 20 minutes later, passing Relly Mill SB to the south of Durham.

    Default 1923 - Kimblesworth Colliery Junction

    North East England during the steam era. Among the last locos built prior to the grouping at the end of 1922 was a Raven S3 Class 4-6-0, number 2364. Turned out in N.E.R. lined vermillion she ran in this livery during 1923. Allocated to York shed, she is returning south with an afternoon Class B goods from Newcastle Forth to York.

    That looks a lot better Frank. I often find I have to tweak Paul's textures too.

    Default 1946 - Suspected Hot box at Ferryhill

    Hello Annie

    Re post #642 -I must point out that I commissioned the 25 Ton Bogie Transhipment vans and in the end "signing off" the textures supplied is down to me. I find that when I commission items Paul sends me stuff for checking and I give the yes or no regarding going with it. So, at the end of the day it is down to me. Over time with more research and as versions of trainz move on I evolve my ideas. It was one reason for me working on the HD Lettering and numbering for N.E.R. E.CJ.S. G.N.R. and L.N.E.R. assets.

    A gang inspect a possible hot box on a heavily weathered G7 bogie transhipment Van in Ferryhill Up yard.

    Nicely done Frank. The weathered ones in particular look very convincing.
