Tile map

Post by 52D » Thu Mar 06, 2008 7:20 pm

Was there a map displayed at Tweedmouth,can we try to collate a list of locations. I suppose the NBR did not want one across the Tweed.
We should prod the local rail companies to reinstate replicas at original locations.

There used to be one at (West) Hartlepool when I was travelling in the late 60s and early 70s.
I don't know if it is still there.

There were originally 24 maps and 11 survive. 2 are in museums; the map from Kings Cross is at the NRM and the one from South Shields is in the museum there. The other 9 survive in their original settings: Beverley, Hartlepool, Middlesburgh, Saltburn, Tynemouth, Morpeth, Scarborough, Whitby and York.
The lost examples were at: Alnmouth, Bridlington, Darlington, Durham, Goole, Hexham, Hull, Leeds City, Malton, Newcastle, Normanton, Selby and Tyne Dock.
It is a rather strange list, some important stations such as Northallerton, Berwick and Alnwick never had a map, yet the powers that be saw fit to put one at Tyne Dock!
Kings Cross was never served by the NER yet it had a map, while Edinburgh Waverley and Carlisle both saw regular NER traffic and did not have one.

I suppose Tyne Dock was a very important NER station at one time as the coal export trade to the dock was one of the companys biggest revenue earners, the same dock now imports coal in from Eastern Europe. How things have changed, who would have thought it 30 years ago. The council depot and industrial estate (Middlefields)now stand where the sheds and holding sidings once were and the last remains of the stone kips were removed to facilitate the new recycling village, just an odd bit here and there left.

The NRM example is in better cindition, and hasn't been exposed to light as much as the York one.

Berwick would probably not had a map due to Berwick being a North British Station and relations being some what strained between NER/NBR. I would have thought that Tweedmouth being a frontier station and Alnwick due to its size and style certainly warrant maps.
Where was the map located at Alnmouth. I hope the Aln Valley Railway if thier plans come to fruition Launch an appeal to reinstate a replica at Alnmouth.

The Alnmouth map was on the up platform, near to the entrance to the first class waiting room. I don't know when it went, but it must have been a long time before the old station was demolished in 1982, as I don't remember seeing it. The AVR would certainly be interested in providing a replica at its station at Alnmouth.
Meanwhile I am currently investigating the possibility of having a 1/3 size copy made to put up in our kitchen.

The oversight by the NER 100 years ago that saw Alnwick Station left off the list of stations to get a map has finally been rectified. Stuart Manley, the owner of Barter Books that now occupies the station, has just installed a replica map in the new buffet that has been opened in a former boiler room.

Yes, there is still a tiled map at Tynemouth Station.
