Dismantled railway line near Washington
Dismantled railway line near Washington
This was the route of the original main line between London and Newcastle-upon-Tyne, opened in 1838. The main line was rerouted through Durham in 1872, but this line remained in use with passenger services continuing until 1964. Freight trains continued to run until 1991.

The tracks have now been lifted, leaving the ballast as a reminder that trains once ran here.
