Westgate Road at Blenheim Street, Newcastle  1966
Westgate Road at Blenheim Street, Newcastle 1966
Blenheim Street has been demolished to make way for the new St James' Boulevard Link . The large building above the trolleybus is the former tobacco factory, seen before the facade was cleaned.

Trolleybus 614 is on its way to Delaval Road on service 35C, part of the last set of routes to be operated by trolleybuses in the city. It was one of the final batch of trolleybuses purchased in 1950 by Newcastle based on a design for London Transport.
