Bedlington Station (remains), with Up coal train

  • Description

    "View northward, towards Ashington and Newbiggin (to the right) and Morpeth (to the left). The station had been closed about six months before (2/11/64), together with the Newcastle - Newbiggin passenger service; even the freight traffic of this great South Northumberland area, which was steam-hauled longer than most (late into 1967), was doomed. The locomotive was one of the long-lived and capable NE J27 0-6-0's, No. 65834. See also and" Photo by Ben Brooksbank, 1965.
