The story of "Sans Pareil" and
the Rainhill Trials is legend, however if you do not know
it you will find it on the pages of The
Timothy Hackworth Story - Rainhill Trials
original can be seen on display at the National Railway Museum
The Timothy Hackworth Museum houses the replica
built by the apprentices at Shildon Works in the late 1970's.
In steam on many occasions, most notably
at the 150th anniversary celebrations of the Rainhill Trials
in 1980, she is now in need of repair.
"Sans Pareil" being removed to
the Ironbridge Power Station, during 2000, for a full refit,
courtesy of the Friends of Trevithick. Why not pay
them a visit.
Since her refit, she has been in steam on
many occasions, most notably on special steam days at Ironbridge
and back home in the North East at a number of locations.
