Apparently, according to BBC News, Tyne and Wear Metro services were disrupted yesterday after lightning hit the power lines. Passengers were evacuated from one train at Sth Wardley Farm, Wardley, Gateshead and led 1 mile along the track to a waiting bus.

I'm guessing that is somewhere around the Pelaw area of the Metro.
