I'm visiting the hand carwash behind that building so often that I have stamp cards piling up waiting to be filled completely. I just never have the right car for the free interior detail with me.

Newcastle Quayside 1990.

Imagine setting up your burger van at the scene of a crash... I suppose business is business.

The 'Quayside line' was all closed off by 1990.

The picture gives a view along where it ran, and it heaved up to the mainline level (... some gradient!) in a tunnel. After choking the engine crew for years it went electric!

Bit* different now...

IIRC Proctor & Gamble had a 'process plant' on the Quayside....

It closed and the company relocated up to Whitley Rd.
