A misty morning on the Tyne a mile west of Hexham station in May 2006. The photograph is taken looking north from alongside the site of Border Counties Junction on the Newcastle - Carlisle route [see image 9290] and shows the remains of the bridge that took the Border Counties Line across the river at the start of its journey north to Riccarton Junction.

A mile west along the Tyne from Hexham station is the site of Border Counties Junction. Here the Carlisle line continues west while the trackbed of the former Border Counties line begins to turn north towards the river (left) which it crossed en route to Riccarton [see image 9347]. The south supporting wall of the signal box that straddled the line can be seen built into the cutting in the right background.
