South Tyneside Electric train at Newcastle Central, 1938

  • Description

    "View NE at the west end of Central Station, Platform 11: a train for South Shields waits, made up of ex-NER/LNER third-rail electric (600v) reconditioned stock (after fire damage), which worked on the North Tyneside lines before the South Tyneside line was electrified in 1938 - shortly before this photograph. Glimpsed on the left is the cab-side of No. 4482 'Golden Eagle', one of the then new Gresley A4 Streamliners." Photo by Walter Dendy, deceased, 1938.
