Locomotives and rolling stock owned and on long term loans to the loco group.
RSH 0-6-0 Saddle tank locomotive No77 Norwood
Norwood was the first steam locomotive to arrive at the Weardale Railway. It was originally given to the loco group under a 10 year loan agreement from the Bowes Railway in Gateshead. In 2006 the loco group completed the purchase of the locomotive to secure it for eventual use on the Weardale branch.
Norwood was one of the last working steam locomotive in the North East of England. It was based at Gateshead for most of its working life and when finally withdrawn donated to the Bowes Railway.
Currently Norwood is in need of restoration. The loco group are actively fundraising and applying for grants to carryout this task. It is estimated that the cost will be in the region of £90,000.
