Was at this railway a couple of years ago, in the evening so no trains running. visited all the stations. It's got a lot of potential especially with its location near to Shildon. However there are so many heritage lines, can the country support them all?

I've diluted Wearside by starting a parallel thread in "Heritage" ... see http://www.firstgreatwestern.info/coffeeshop/index.php?topic=21811.msg267780#msg267780 ... where I have quoted and answered this.  Excellent point.
