03/10/1948 Darlington Works The first new 'A.1,' No. 60130, was on trial W/E 24/9 and No. 60131 during W/E 2/10, both are nameless. Locomotives awaiting Works:-Nos. 517, 2342/71, 3344, 5027/28, 5852/83, 7300/07, 8141, E8723, 9392, 9881, 61638, 63099, 69841 and Electric 26500. Locomotives ex Works:-Nos. 60804, 60980, 62729/75, 63333/91, 65666/92, 65752, 68302/99, 68675, 68744, 69868 and 'Austerity' 77050. No. 9089 was broken up W/E 24/9. SLS/194811
29/01/1955 North eastern Miscellany No. 82028 Class 3 2-6-2T is at Bank Top, and No. 82026 is working the Kirby Stephen passenger job. They sent their J21s 65047 an 65092 to works last week (end of December). The first of the present order of Diesel 0-6-0 shunting engines, No. d13152, is on trial. Class J25 Nos. 65666 an 65698 have left works after complete overhaul, and J21s Nos. 65100, 65047, 65092, 65098 have been cut up. The last N.E.R. engine at Kirkby Stephen, J25 No. 65655, is now in store at Darlington. No. 65832, Class J27, while being run in ex-works at Bank Top loco, made a name for itself by careering from the shed area unattended, and running down the Up independent from Parkgate to Springfield, about 11 miles, where she ran into a dead end, and was derailed. The Parkgate signalman saw what was happening, and blocked the main lines, which saved what could have been a serious accident. The Derby-Newcastle excursion was worked by 45651 on 9th January.
During the first week of this year, the Croft goods branch was used for trials of the two types of Diesel shunters at West Hartlepool, with loads up to 500 tons. No. 11702 was one of the engines tried, and I believe the other was 11105. The N5 sent here for shops was sent in error, some mix up between the names Darnall and Darlington I have been told!
