Puffing Billy emerges
This is a replica of the world's oldest surviving steam locomotive. It was the first commercial adhesion steam locomotive, employed to haul coal chaldron wagons from the mine at Wylam to the docks at Lemington-on-Tyne in Northumberland. It is being prepared for its first morning run along the Pockerley Waggonway at Beamish Open Air Museum.
