tyne and wear metro

Brockley Whins Metro station is on the Tyne and Wear Metro Green Line. It serves the Brockley Whins area of South Tyneside, England.

The station was formerly served by mainline services between Sunderland and Newcastle Central station but was taken over by the Metro as part of the extension to Sunderland and South Hylton in 2002. Today the services operated by the current franchise holder Northern pass through the station but do not stop. There are also a few freight trains (mainly imported coal) that use the branch line that diverges just west of here en route to the deep water terminal at Tyne Dock, and empty Grand Central workings between Heaton depot and Sunderland.
