Station Name: DURHAM
Still open but included for completeness
The 9.20 am London Kings Cross to Newcastle express is approaching Durham station across the viaduct in June 1953. The train is conveying through coaches to Tyne Commission Quay for passengers to connect with a Scandinavian sailing. It is hauled by No.60963 which was built at Darlington works to Gresley’s V2, 2-6-2 design in 1943, and was originally numbered 3675; the locomotive was delivered new to Heaton shed on 12 January of that year. In 1946 it was renumbered to 963 by the LNER and received the ‘60’ prefix at Nationalisation. Withdrawn from 50A, York North shed on 29 June 1965, it was scrapped in August at Cashmores, Great Bridge.
