The last time I visited Sunderland station it was in the open, albeit entirely surrounded by buildings. That was a long time ago though and the Metro had not reached it then. The much less frequent Northern diesels between Newcastle and Middlesbrough still use it however, sharing the Metro line for a few miles until just south of this station. They use separately numbered ends of the same platform here. A (Newcastle) Airport Metro service calls on 26 March 2019. The glass wall is backlit, slightly relieving the gloom.
