Station Name: DURHAM
Still open but included for completeness
A view north-eastward from the down platform of Durham in June 1953. This train, headed by Gresley V3 (modified V1) 2-6-2T No.67688, has come from Newcastle, but might well have come via Sunderland having joined the main line two miles back at Newton Hall. Durham station had the luxury of fast lines in the centre for the ECML trains that did not call there. No.67688 was built in 1940 and it entered service in the February numbered 397. Renumbered by the LNER in 1946 to 7688, it received its ’6’ prefix at Nationalisation in 1948. Withdrawn from 64B, Haymarket shed on 29 December 1962, it was broken up the following June.
