On the the wagon there is a plaque that says the following...
Falstone Coal Tub
This narrow gauge railway wagon is typical of the small four wheel tubss used to transport coal from coalface to mine surface, often by hand, sometimes by horse or small locomotive, along roughly laid track.
It was rescued in a derelict state from
Falstone Mine near Kielder Water in Northumberland and restored by members of Churwell Environmental Volunteers.
It has been donated to the people of Churwell as a reminder of the significance of coal mining in this area from the late 18th to mid 19th
It stands also as a memorial to the local people whose livelihoods depended on the hewing of coal - the primary power source of the Industrial Revolution.
(Our thanks to the Welsh Highland Heritage Rly., Porthmadog, for the donation
of track, MSS Ltd of Morley for preparation & surface treatment of some metal parts and The Sign Group of Morley, for this sign.)
