The lonely outpost of Deadwater, Northumberland, seen here in 2007 some 51 years after closure. View is north towards the border, marked by the dark treeline in the left middle distance. There was never much of a service here, and what there was seemed grudged. The 1951 BR timetable entry for the 6.47am train from Riccarton Junction to Hexham reads... 'Note E' : Calls at Deadwater 6.55am when required to take up, on informing the station master at Riccarton Junction before 5pm on the day previous to travel.
