Tyne and Wear Metro line
The newly-built Tyne and Wear Metro line towards Newcastle City Centre diverges from the original Blyth and Tyne line at this junction. It has been retained to allow access from the main Metro line to the empty stock line to Manors Station to allow Metro trains to get to and from the depot at South Gosforth without having to travel around the whole of the loop.
