Station


Name and dates

Wall (1858-1955)

Opened on the Border Counties Railway.


Description

This was a single platform station with a long passing loop. The platform was on the east side of the loop, the village side. Wall itself was just under half a mile to the north. The River North Tyne was just to the west.

The station had a single siding on the west side, approached from the north. This siding was later looped. The signal box opened in 1893 and closed in 1955 when the station closed to passengers. The line remained open until 1958.

The station building was burned down before closure and replaced with a timber waiting room. A replacement building now stands on the platform which has survived. The stone built signal box also survives.
