Paul_Parkin said:The Tyne & Wear Metro is basically a railway line methinks :? . They used to have 101's running along it.
AFAIK Sunderland - South Hylton is owned by Network Rail, track gauge trains have run down there a few times.evil_hippo said:I disagree. For a start, Callerton-The Airport was never BR, nor were the Felling-Pelaw slow lines; and Kenton Bank Foot- Callerton was on disused trackbed but not tracks, as was Pelaw-South Shields and Sunderland-South Hylton. The Underground sections were completely new.
Pelaw - Sunderland is fitted with TPWS for mainline trains and Indusi train stops for the Metros. The signals also have much longer overlap sections.Simming said:No, the tracks that they run on have both systems of train pretection, BR and T&W Metro (I cant remember the system)
