    Very nice Frank. There's something about a teak coach that makes it look so much better than a painted coach. I always enjoy making teak coaches, but my efforts aren't a patch on those two coaches.

    The coaches look really good.
    Wood texture is so difficult to get right and you've done a good job with it.

    GNR Diagram 171 looking good in both post #570 and post #572. The aged teak texture looks particularly good.

    Thanks Euromodeller and Rob.

    Now there's a sight to soothe sore eyes. The old NER coaches were such elegant things.

    Default 1925 Coal for Littleburn

    Northeast England during the steam era. One of the sessions I have on my personal Consett & NW Durham route involves bringing coal off the Waterhouses branch and reversing at Baxter Wood to then head down the ECML to the coke works at Littleburn. Prior to WWI many collieries in County Durham had coke works on site to produce the higher value product, which was in great demand from ironworks, factories and domestic customers. The coal from the county was well suited for making coke. The cokeworks produced a valuable by-product, coal gas, used for lighting homes and cooking. This meant that some of the coal output from the county was bought by gasworks in larger towns and cities.

    Below, while the loco, former N.E.R. Worsdell J26 0-6-0 No. 881, runs round the train at Baxter Wood a BTP steam Autocar comes down from the Bishop Auckland branch heading towards Relly Mill junction.




    No. 881 comes to a stop past the trailing connection from the Bridge House Junction to Baxter Wood Junction chord to the sidings where the coal train waits.




    After coupling up to the coal train No. 881 draws the train out of the sidings and on to the steep grade down to pass beneath the Bishop Auckland branch in order to reach the East Coast Main Line at Bridge House junction.
