The Consett to South Shields line was built in 1834 as a coal railway. Even when the early inclines were replaced by deviations, the gradients were severe. Iron ore trains storming the banks to Consett attracted many enthusiasts. Beamish is now the site of a major open-air museum reliving the achievements of the North East.
