Niddrie South Junction: Grab shot from a Waverley - Newcraighall train crossing a bridge on the approach to Niddrie South Junction (100m to the left) on 9 August 2013. View is west, with the roof of the Premier Inn on Newcraighall Road visible top left. Below the bridge is the trackbed of the freight only line that ran from Niddrie West via Wanton Walls to reach the ECML at Monktonhall Junction (see image [[4546]]). The bridge is no more, the cutting has been partially infilled and the fields behind the camera now form part of the Newcraighall Village housing development (see image [[64993]]).

Newburn Junction: 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.
