Byers Green Station (remains)
Byers Green Station (remains)
View northward, towards Spennymoor and Ferrhill; ex-North Eastern, Ferryhill - Spennymoor - Bishop Auckland line. The station closed 4/12/39, when the passenger service from Ferryhill was cut back to Spennymoor. Goods was handled at Byers Green until 2/6/58; the photograph shows that in 1965 the line was still in use from Spennymoor through towards Bishop Auckland. (This was in fact the third station that had existed at Byers Green - the history is complex).
