Pallion railway station (site), Tyne & Wear
Opened in 1853 by the York Newcastle & Berwick Railway, soon to be part of the North Eastern Railway, on the line from Durham to Sunderland, this station closed to passengers in 1964 and completely in 1965.
View west towards South Hylton and Durham. The station was beyond the bridge. The whole area has since been landscaped. When the Metro line was reopened to South Hylton, a more northerly route was chosen with Pallion Metro station being around 100m to the right, down the hill (see NZ3757 : Pallion Metro station, Tyne & Wear).
