What did you think of Dan Snow's "Locomotion" broadcast on BBC? An interesting way of telling the story - perhaps a little disappointing that he missed out "The Rainhill Trials" - which must be a key event in the development of the railways. The inclusion of the very tragic death of William Huskisson, whilst very important, is hardly a key event in the story Snow is trying to tell?

The station was opened in 1877 by the North Eastern Railway Company to replace an earlier station built in 1841 within the City walls. Designed by architect Thomas Prosser and engineer Thomas Elliot Harrison, the station is now listed Grade II. This plaque commemorates the refurbishment schemes carried out in 2004 by Great North Eastern Railway Ltd with the support of the Railway Heritage Trust.
