Bowes Railway Museum, Springwell :: Shared Description

Bowes Railway was originally built by George Stephenson in 1826 to transport coal from pits in north-west Durham to boats on the River Tyne at Jarrow. The railway was bought by the Bowes family in 1850, who operated it until it was nationalised in 1947. Bowes Railway is the only preserved rope-hauled railway in the world. There is a museum at Springwell based around the original waggonshop and blacksmiths buildings and steam engines are operated by volunteer enthusiasts.
