Lockdown Walks: Tyne & Wear Metro 4015

We take another trip to Tynemouth for this edition of “Lockdown Walks”.

Pictured in the below image is 4015 which was operating through Tynemouth on 5th June 2020 as part of the full daytime timetable running on this section of line. 4015 is one of the production Metro Cars built for the opening of the Tyne and Wear Metro in 1980 but its day are now numbered with a new fleet of trains on the horizon. Contracts have been signed and the next few years will see an all new fleet enter service across the network.

In this view we see 4015 crossing Beach Road Bridge in Tynemouth with a service heading towards Tynemouth. (Photograph by David Maxwell, 5th June 2020)
