Blyth Station

With work on the new Morrison's supermarket being started this week, it might be a good time to remind people what used to be on the site.

I have always had an interest in railways, most men retain at least a passing interest, but I moved to Blyth long after the railway ceased.

These photos are therefore not my own, but have been accumulated over the years. I have a few more, mainly postcards and old photos bought over the web, but these are a representative sample.

I can almost smell the scene....

At a recent model railway exhibition I took some photos of a 2mm to the foot (N gauge) model of Blyth Station in the 1950's, I'll post photos of the excellent model in the next couple of days.
