Railway Transport Site
The North Eastern Railway, Newcastle, Tynemouth and Newcastle branch, opened in 1887. At its southern end it used part of the old Blyth and Tyne Railway (HER ref. 1049). This was part of the reorganisation of the railway, when taken over by the North Eastern Railway, and was completed in 1882. Initially it formed a loop with the parallel line (HER ref. 1049) until the older line was abandoned, except for a short stretch giving access to the old Blyth & Tyne Railway Station (HER ref. 2050) which was used as a depot.
