Gallery 256: Beamish Great North Steam Fair 2011
The Great North Steam Fair took place at Beamish - the Living Museum of the North between 14th and 17th April 2011 and this gallery features photos from Day One of the event. The undoubted highlight of the event for the tram enthusiast was the loan of Manchester 765 from the Heaton Park Tramway and this was used extensively in passenger service on the day. Other trams in service on the day were Gateshead 10, Sunderland 16 and Beamish (Oporto) 196 with Leeds 6 stabled on the Depot Fan throughout the day. Of course the event was not all about the trams and for the first time ever on British Trams Online we feature a few images of other vehicles in action on the day including on loan steam locomotive Captain Baxter on the Colliery Railway and on the main railway at Rowley Station the Y7 No. 985. We hope you appreciate the other transport images and understand why they have been included so as to give you a complete picture of what the event was about. To access the photos click on the relevant thumbnail and you can then either navigate from there or return to this page and click on your next one!

Photographs in this Gallery were taken by Gareth Prior on 14th April 2011.
