Station Name: DURHAM
Still open but included for completeness
A general view of Durham station looking south-west from the up platform on 21 May 1966. Both platforms retain the large expanse of glazed roofing which was installed by the NER in the 1870s when the Durham – Ferryhill route opened and Durham became a main line station. The electric lighting is of LNER vintage. The new concrete on the far left is over the arrival platform for the trains from Sunderland/Leamside which ceased to run in 1964. Approaching on the down fast track is Gresley’s A5 No. 60024, ‘Kingfisher’. Built in 1936 and entering service on 26 December at Haymarket shed, it was withdrawn from Aberdeen Ferryhill shed on 5 September 1966 and scrapped later that year by Hughes Bolckows at North Blyth.
