Gallery 745: Tyne and Wear Metro Northern routes - June 2018

This is the platform for trains to St James at Tynemouth station. Situated on the east side, there were originally two bays on this side at both ends for terminating trains which have now been filled in and their sites are now used as markets on set days of the week. Tynemouth station was designed originally for the North Eastern Railway by William Bell and opened on 7th July 1882. It became a Tyne & Wear Metro station on 11th August 1980 with the start of the first stage of conversion to light rail, as a terminus for trains running to Haymarket via Benton and a through station for Metro services on 14th November 1982. The buildings were restored in 2012 and the station is now a Grade II Listed Structure by English Heritage.
