4/64 No. 2 Engine Houses
Remains of Engine House at summit of Brussleton Incline. Circa 1825 for the
Stockton and Darlington Railway Company; converted into a dwelling in the mid
C19. Tooled and squared sandstone. Welsh slate roof with rebuilt brick chimneys.
Attached to west return of No. 1 Engine House.
Rebuilt north front has large, blocked round-arched opening with flush voussoirs
and projecting keystone. Rear has blocked circular opening. 2-storey, 3-bay
west return has central, late C20 4-panel door and replaced 4- and 6-pane sashes.
Low monopitch roof has lateral stacks rising from north and south fronts.
This building originally housed a stationary steam engine. It was attached to
an open-sided structure which straddled the twin railway tracks and contained
double-acting drums which hauled wagons up the east and west inclines.
