NZ4920 : Middlesbrough railway station, Yorkshire

Middlesbrough railway station, Yorkshire
Middlesbrough railway station, Yorkshire
A temporary station was opened on or near this site in 1846 by the Stockton & Darlington Railway on the line from Darlington through to Redcar. This replaced a previous terminus station on Commercial Street (see NZ4921 : Middlesbrough 2nd railway station (site), Yorkshire), and was itself quickly replaced by a permanent structure in 1847, which would have been located to the far right of this image.
As Middlesbrough grew, a new and larger station was required. The 1847 station closed, was replaced by a temporary one in Wood Street, to the east of here, and the current station was opened in 1877 by the North Eastern Railway.
View east towards Cargo Fleet, Saltburn, etc. As built, the 1877 station had an overall roof but the station was badly damaged in the Second World War and was rebuilt in the form seen here.
