Stockton Bank was also the name of the signal box at the exit of the marshalling yard. I would not be allowed to take such photographs today with health and safety; I was fortunate in those days to possess a lineside pass which allowed me access to the lines.
The first photograph is of the ‘Flying Scotsman’ on the ‘Pegler’s Pullman’ special from Doncaster to Edinburgh on 9 May 1964.
The second photograph is of a freight train passing the signal box hauled by 43100 taken on 28 October 1965 heading towards Stockton.
The third photograph is of a Peak class diesel no.D183 also on 28 October 1965 passing the ‘box’ with a southbound passenger train.
