SLS & RCTS: North East Rail Tour 28/9/63
Beautifully turned out Raven Q7 class 0-8-0 no. 63460 passes through Hunwick station on the leg from Consett South Jct. to Bishop Auckland during the second day of this mammoth tour that lasted for five days. This loco had actually been withdrawn in the previous December at Tyne Dock mpd but was obviously in good enough shape to take part in several legs of this tour. Hunwick station would close to passenger traffic on 4/5/64.
