Railway line, Durham, 1968
People have gathered to watch the return journey of the Flying Scotsman three days after its 40th anniversary trip - see NZ2749 : Flying Scotsman at Southburn Dene viaduct, 1968; the train is crossing the North Road viaduct to the left of the signals. To the left and behind the camera is Redhills Cutting. The houses on the left are on Redhills Lane. The building close by on the right was a synagogue until 1955 and is now Durham Presbyterian Church; I'm not sure what it was when this photo was taken. The church with the tower is NZ2742 : Our Lady of Mercy & St Godric's Church. Black and white image from a colour slide.
