Felling Metro station, Tyne & Wear
Originally opened in 1896 by the North Eastern railway on the line from Newcastle to Sunderland, this station replaced an earlier 1839 one sited just beyond the current station - see NZ2762 : Felling (1st) railway station (site), Tyne & Wear. It was converted from heavy rail to Metro in 1981.
View east towards Heworth and Sunderland. The platform was wider at one time and had a large canopy which extended over the tracks on either side. For further information, see LinkExternal link
