Did you know? In 1886 Durham coal owners forced the NER to give them a direct route to the Tyne at Dunston, avoiding the bottleneck at Tyne Dock.

South Shields Low Station

Is anyone able to assist with a photograph of South Shields Low Station?   This was the Brandling Junction station above the HCC tunnel to Harton Low Staiths, near S/S market place,  across Station Road from St Hilda Colliery (now an ASDA).   Some Low Station buildings were still in use in the 1980s as a car repair garage.
South Shields Low Station headshunt was above the wall with the dome mirror
(incidentally La Strada nightclub was in the small site in front of the mirror)
