Acomb Colliery Junction [2nd]
Opened on the Border Counties Railway.
Note: text in square brackets is added for clarity and was not part of the location's name.
This was the junction for the siding to Acomb Colliery. This was the second line to this colliery, following the same course as the older original tramway which had joined the line to the south (Acomb Colliery Junction [1st]), to be approached from the south. The new connection was approached from the north.
The location was north of Border Counties Junction and the River Tyne.
The location is still discernible, but overgrown.
