Tyne Dock

One of the mighty Raven Q7 0-8-0s, no 63472, photographed on the roofless Tyne Dock shed in 1960. These powerful locomotives were eventually displaced from the Tyne Dock - Consett iron ore trains following the arrival of the BR Class 9F 2-10-0s in the late 1950s. Tyne Dock shed was officially closed by BR in September 1967.
