Shrouded in steam, a member of the footplate crew climbs back on board Ivatt 4MT 2-6-0 no 43129 at Bellingham on 9 November 1963. The locomotive has just run round The Wansbeck Wanderer and is preparing to return to Reedsmouth. The special will later visit the Rothbury branch [see image 31617] before heading back to Newcastle via Morpeth.

The old Border Counties station building at Bellingham on 5 November 2007 with the usual chilly and slightly uncomfortable aura surrounding it. My thoughts, as always, turn to Stephen King^s The Marsten House... (add sound of creaking floorboard and owl hooting)
