We’ve got amazing plans for a 1950s Town and upland farm, Georgian coaching inn and more. To find out more about our plans for the future you can visit our Remaking Beamish page.
The former Duke of Sutherland’s private locomotive and saloon coach No.58A are currently undergoing extensive restoration.
Dunrobin was designed by David Jones of the Highland Railway and built by Sharp Stewart in Glasgow in 1895.
Beamish bought Dunrobin and 58A from the Friends of Fort Steele, in Canada, in 2011.
Work is progressing on the building of steam locomotive Samson, a replica of a narrow gauge steam locomotive that worked in Weardale in the late 19th century.
In 1874, Stephen Lewin of Poole, Dorset, supplied the London Lead Company with the 0-4-0 geared locomotive of traction engine type design for use on its one mile tramway at Cornish Hush.
Two new accessible buses based on original vehicles are being created to take over from our current J2007 bus.
The first bus is based on the remains of an ex-Crosville Leyland Cub, No.716. The project is supported by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport’s Wolfson fund and we have received a grant of £120,000 towards the cost of its restoration.
The second bus, a 1939 Leyland Cub, ex-West Riding, which will be restored and adapted as part of the Remaking Beamish project.
