North Sunderland Railway

The North Sunderland Railway was a railway line in Northumberland, England. It was opened in 1898, and ran from Chathill to Seahouses, with an intermediate station at North Sunderland. Chathill was on the main line of the North Eastern Railway between Morpeth and Berwick. The branch was four miles in length and a single track with standard gauge track.

The line was built independently, and money was always scarce. In 1933 an early diesel shunting locomotive was acquired for the line, bought on the hire-purchase system.

After World War II lack of income precipitated closure, which took place in 1951. 

Stock was obtained from other railways, in particular the NER, and ex GER coaches were also used at the end. Locos and rolling stock was often borrowed/leased for short times.

NER d162 Driving Carriage/trailer

Like many other railways the NER tried out push-pull trains to improve services. They converted some old ordinary third class coaches, adding a driving cab and luggage compartment. 
They also built another design in 1908 specially for push pull, the d162, which also included standard design features of the time. 
One of these d162 coaches was used briefly on the North Sunderland Railway. 

Requires chassis, bogies and finishing
