This is a re-alignment of the Newcastle and Carlisle railway to the south of its original course.
Most of the deviation remains open. Gateshead Metrocentre was opened on this route after the route via Scotswood closed to passengers.
These locations are along the line.
This is a modern two platform station linked by a footbridge to the Metrocentre shopping centre. It is located to the north of the centre with coach parking and car parking nearby.
