Durham with Duke of Gloucester

23 April 2005

Stephen's delayed birthday train trip to Durham was with Steam Dreams

Our diesel locomotive Dionysus took us from Finsbury Park to York. Here at York, a crowd of people waits for the diesel to be taken off and replaced with our steam locomotive to take us on to Durham

More crowds watch 71000 Duke of Gloucester reverse onto the head of the train

At Durham, after some lunch we visited the Cathedral. Here a view north, with the castle sitting in the middle of the peninsula created by a loop of the River Wear

From the top of the tower, one of the weirs on the Wear

Looking east across the city

Lucy in the Cloisters

A GNER train crosses the viaduct heading north

The cathedral towering over the river

Jesus Mill and weir, and Prebends Bridge

Back at Durham station, and Duke of Gloucester brings our train from Newcastle
