I’ve recently moved offices and now see this plaque marking a Royal visit to Dorman Longs Steel Plant.

This location is inside the current steelworks, so cannot be visited by the public.

  1. Interesting to see that they ran a passenger train into Lackenby, and also it’s not the royal train it appears to be made up of ex LMS stock and mk1s

  2. Wonder where they accessed the internal line from on the main line ? I always thought the one I knew (via the Cleveland works coke ovens) only dated from the time the BOS / Concast opened ?
