Pre 1825 Locomotives - Part 1. Introduction I have always been interested in the pioneering steam locomotives and because of this I have decided to try and set down, in chronological order, a description of all the locomotives built before 1825.
I have added Stockton & Darlington's Locomotion to round off the story. The text is fairly detailed but not exhaustive; I don't think publishing on the net is the ideal place for this. But I hope to give a good idea of the locomotives and the ideas behind them and perhaps make people want to find out more. I have only gathered this information from published sources and don't profess to it being my own work. Please let me know if you spot any mistakes I have made!
Owing to the amount of information I wish to include I have decide to split it into five parts, each taking as their main theme the following: Forgotten Relics of an Enterprising Age. Railway Herald.

Disused Stations: Lauder Station. Notes: After Lauder station opened, the NBR made it known that they were not happy with the standard of the contractor’s work or with the facilities that had been provided at Lauder.
On 15 July 1901 the NBR goods manager informed the Lauder company that he was generally dissatisfied with the facilities for dealing with livestock on the branch and said that the loading bank at Lauder was unsuitable. He also pointed out that there was a considerable traffic in livestock from Lauderdale to Newcastle, and that the rates for conveying that traffic would require careful adjustment. File.

Disused Stations:Belmont Junction. Notes: The station opened as Belmont to serve as the junction between the main line from Gateshead to Darlington and the branch to Durham, whose station was on Gilesgate.
From 1852 the station was known as Belmont Junction. The single-storey station building, stone-built with a series of gables facing the tracks, was located in the ‘V’ of the junction, and a subsidiary building stood on the ‘up’ (east side) line. The OS 1856 map does not indicate that the station had platforms. A sandstone water tower , designed by G T Andrews and described as a ‘gas house’ on the OS 1856 map, stood immediately south of the main building. This stately two-storey edifice presented only its upper floor at the track level, which was on an embankment and was accompanied by a carefully detailed chimney, perched like a memorial column on a tall pedestal. In June 1849 eight main line trains called on weekdays in each direction, and six on Sundays. Sources and bibliography: Trains-fr: patrimoine et tourisme ferroviaire. La France Vue Du Rail.

One major job undertaken in the Works in 1904 was the rebuilding of No.27, the most interesting locomotive ever to run on the Railway, It had been constructed as a 2-4-0 tender locomotive with 14in x 22in outside cylinders and 5ft7 1/4in wheels for the Newcastle & Darlington Railway in 1845 by Robert Stephenson & Co of Newcastle, works number 491. It became NER number 30 when that Company was formed in 1854, later changing to number 1899 and then 1761.
