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)

I used to work in High Shields signal box . The old Low stn was at the bottom of High Shields goods yard. It was still complete. There is a photo I have Copyright J W Armstrong in 1-4- 1950. There are others taken from a distance.
