The Metro are apparently seriously intending to use some of the former trackbed for an extension now.

They always were as the extension from South Hylton would join it south of Victoria viaduct. It would then Continue to Pelaw.

Ultimately extending to Ferryhill, with a view to perhaps going down the Stillington branch to Stockton & Middlesbrough, keeps coming up too, with a triangular junction at Penshaw. Pie in the sky? Possibly, but who knows these days?

They better start fitting toilets to Metros if you want to travel that far.
