    I worked occasionally as a Relief Signalman at South Pelaw 1960s until late 70s. I was at all the boxes on the Leamside , Consett branch. Pontop xing , Sunderland area. South Shields, Harton Junction , Durham South, Tyne Yard Box and I finished my time at IECC Gateshead.

    I recently got a dog and regularly walk with my children where I believe Pelton station once was and next to a huge old barn that I believe was once a coachworks? We are really interested in any history of this railway and site which is directly opposite our house in South Pelaw….. a point in the direction of any information would be massively appreciated
