Haltwhistle station footbridge and signal box
Haltwhistle station footbridge and signal box
Once the junction for the 13-mile Alston branch line, which was closed in 1976. The branch was served by a platform which was to the right of the camera position. Unlike at Hexham, the 1901 North Eastern Railway Haltwhistle signal box is closed, and the area is controlled by colour light signals operated from a panel located on the westbound platform. The box is Grade II listed. Note the staggered platforms at this station.
