Tyne Dock

J25 no 65645 shunts a high-capacity iron ore hopper alongside the loading gantry at Tyne Dock bottom in March 1960. The 40 plus locomotives allocated to Tyne Dock shed around that time included 10 of the powerful Standard class 9F 2-10-0s, all fitted with Westinghouse air compressors for operating the discharge doors on these hoppers during unloading at Consett.
