Beamish Museum  Beamish, the Living Museum of the North. This is our little slice of authentic vintage on Instagram!

Day two of Horses at War has now come to an end but, there's plenty more equine action planned for tomorrow! Join us from 10am as we continue telling the story of First World War Horses. 🐴🐴🐴#horse #horses #horsesofinstagram

The horses are busy contributing to the Home Front effort, working the land ploughing, harrowing, fertiliser spreading and rolling the fields in preparation of spring planting. #horse #horsesofinstagram #horses #beamishmuseum #beamishopenairmuseum #beamish

The sun is shining and the horses are ready for day two of Horses at War. Who's joining us today?

Saddle up... here's some of the highlights of our #HorsesAtWar event so far!

During a little bit of shunting at Rowley Station today, N.E.R carriage No.818 (3071) made a rare appearance in the sunshine... and our steam team couldn't resist getting a few photos with it!

No.818 is currently in the queue for overhaul but it will be on display at Rowley Station today if you'd like to take a closer look. #NorthEasternRailway #railway #train #steamtrain #travel #transport #carriage #display #heritage #museum #lovedurham
