Woodburn

Ivatt 2-6-0 no 43063 running round the 11 coach 'Wansbeck Piper' at Woodburn on 2 October 1966. The train, which ran from Newcastle Central via Morpeth, was double headed throughout by 43063+43000 running tender to tender (although the run round manoeuvre seen here required the locomotives to be separated due to the short remaining head shunt). The special had been organised by Gosforth Round Table to mark the closure of the Wansbeck Valley line, which by then terminated at Woodburn. See image 21165
