Hartlepool Railway and Dock Company Railway

Hartlepool Dock and Railway Company built a railway to Haswell in the 1830s to bring coal down to Hartlepool from inland collieries. The line "met" the Durham and Sunderland Railway at Haswell, but at rightangles and there were two stations. The lines were joined with a curve by the North Eastern Railway in the 1870s.

The railway closed in 1968 and is now the Castle Eden Walkway / National Cycle Network Route 14.
