Winter 1979 and the North Tyne BR services now terminate in the south bay platforms at Tynemouth. The through platforms are out of use, as is the route towards Cullercoats, for Metro conversion. The rusting line on the left beyond the crossover leads to the northbound through platform. The 104 makes a smoky exit from Tynemouth station, heading back towards Newcastle via North Shields (Simon Hadden)
