Railway Centenary

It's September 27, 1925 and the Stockton Darlington railway is celebrating 100 years of railway steam locomotives. The festival consisted of a run past by various significant locomotives culminating with the original 1824 Locomotion #1 pulling a train of replica cars. The engine is currently at the Head of Steam Museum.
Hard to believe that railways have been operating for almost 200 years.
More on the 1925 celebrations here.
