Westoe Lane station, South Shields & Whitburn Colliery Railway, 1953
The view is westward, towards Tyne Dock and Whitburn Junction. In the opposite direction ran the S.S. & W.C. Railway to Whitburn Colliery, which closed five months later on 23/11/53 along with this station, also the line from Westoe Colliery which lasted until 1993. Ahead the lines were goods only, but electrified, conveying the mineral traffic to Tyne Dock staithes or onto the ex-NER lines.
