    I have been on it , it stood on Darlington station (bank top ) for a long time , us children played on it untill some grumpy jobs worth kicked us up the arse to get off it now resides in the museum on north road , the great north road the A1 where the museum is and the worlds oldest working station , i believe so anyways , and its where the latest steam train was built , the tornado , seeing the foto,s im getting nostalgic now and cant wait to get back there , the viaduct in the pic is still there , it spans the river tees at Yarm , a place i have fished many times and sailed up in my boat , there is also a boozer named after the train in newton aycliffe , i have been in there as well , a good eatery to boot .
