Electric Locomotives at St Hilda Sidings
Electric Locomotives at St Hilda Sidings
Till 1989 spoil from Westoe Colliery was taken by rail to staithes on the river Tyne. This was part of much wider electric rail system that once existed but which by the late 1980s only covered the final section via a very low tunnel that linked St Hilda siding with Harton Low staithes on the river and which diesel locomotives could not use. In 1989 the entire operation was converted to a conveyor belt and this photo was taken on the final day of rail operation when No12 and No13 were at St Hilda's although only No 13 was in use.
