History: The Blyth and Tyne Railway was built chiefly to link the collieries in Ashington, Seghill and Blyth to the River Tyne at Percy Main. It later expanded to link Tynemouth and Newcastle upon Tyne, providing a passenger service to Whitley Bay. In 1855 the Newsham to Bedlington line was bought from Bedlington Coal Company and extended to Morpeth in 1858.
