Northern Sprinter 156444 leaves Hartlepool in October 2019, heading south with the 13.24 departure to Whitby, which is a through working from Hexham. The land beyond the fence to left of the unit is the site of the former 51C Hartlepool shed which backed up to the road bridge just out of view to the left. A redundant overgrown track can be seen on this side of the unit. This line formerly ran almost to Seaton Carew station, being a goods line into the once extensive siding complex to the now demolished Hartlepool Steelworks.
