What's this website about? I have had an interest in railways as long as I can remember. I was born and bred in the coal-rich area of North-East England. Our house backed onto Seaton Bank, a well known area for railway photographers as the locos. had to work really hard pulling empty mineral wagons to Murton and South Hetton Collieries. I was raised on a diet of J27's and Q6's, interspersed with occasional B1's and, later, WD's and K1's.
