Donating Fencing to Stephenson Railway Museum

The Sisk Lagan Joint Venture donated 160 metres of anti-climb fencing, which is no longer required, to the museum to replace their damaged or stolen fencing along the track. We delivered the fencing at the end of January and Robin Gibson from the museum was absolutely delighted with the donation.

Geoff Woodward, North & South Tyneside Museum Manager for Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums said:

The Stephenson Railway Museum is enormously grateful to Sisk Lagan Joint Venture for the very kind donation of redundant fencing panels from the A19 Silverlink Road Works. The steel panels will be used to upgrade the line side fencing along the North Tyneside Steam Railway, replacing the existing lower-grade post and also the wire fencing. It’s a really valuable contribution to the site which attracts large numbers of people every year to enjoy heritage train rides on the railway.

Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums manages the Stephenson Railway Museum and North Tyneside Steam Railway on behalf of North Tyneside Council. The North Tyneside Steam Railway is operated solely by volunteers of the North Tyneside Steam Railway Association
