While my wife was getting her hair done by her hairdresser in Hamilton ,Newcastle I thought id spend that time craming as much time driving around Newcastle .The last time I was photographing trains at Hexham we were getting a steam loco ready to be moved to Rhondda Colliery back in 1973 , I was a junior member of HVSM 40 years ago!!
First I went to UGL
then to Port Waratah
then to the coal roads at Hexham
Here are a couple of pics of the day
