(Continued from page 12)

This line has, of course, a special significance for our own rail- way, since we run over a stretch of the original Blyth and Tyne which ran from Percy Main to Blyth.

I have since sent off my application for membership of SENRUG, details of which are on their website, www.senrug.co.uk. I highly recommend a visit to the website, as it gives full details of the campaign, and also contains details of many more campaigns which SENRUG are running, to bring back rail to a wider area of the County.

I look forward to the success of the campaign, and to completing my rail journey, at some time in the future, to the former termi- nus at Newbiggin.

For the benefit of members who are not familiar with the geogra- phy of this line, I have added a map on the next page.

Two photos of stations on the Blyth and Tyne line. Although much of the station buildings have disappeared, the platforms are still standing.
