The pin marks the approximate position of the train in this 1965 view of the Stockton and Darlington Railway route along Stockton's quayside. The locomotive (works number 814) was built by Andrew Barclays of Kilmarnock in 1898. Worthy of note in the background, above the second and third trucks, is the building at the end of the north side of Finkle Street which still exists in 2013. The Custom House Tavern had been demolished and the remains of its walls can be seen above the first truck, buttressing the adjoining building on the south side of the street.

The Stockton and Darlington Railway was built to carry coal from west Durham to the River Tees at Stockton. This photograph shows the Stockton where the coal was transferred to ships at staithes roughly opposite the end of Wharf Street This comment's pin marks the approximate position of the original end of the line in 1825 at Cottage Row, just to the north of Moat Street. An extension along the riverside to Silver Street opened the following year. The railway was extremely successful, which caused problems because coal was delivered to Stockton quicker then boats could take it away. Larger ships were unable to navigate the Tees as far as Stockton and the situation was not resolved until 1830 when the coal traffic was diverted along a new line from Bowesfield Junction to new deep-water docks at Middlesbrough. The line along the quayside was then mainly used for miscellaneous freight to and from the warehouses and wharves along the route, a service which continued until closure in 1967. Horse-drawn vehicles resembling stage coaches fitted with flanged wheels provided passenger services along this route for a while; after the opening ceremony locomotive haulage was reserved for coal traffic. No stations were provided and coaches stopped to allow passengers to disembark and board at convenient places, usually where the line crossed a road and often near hostelries. The original terminus for passengers was at Cottage Row and further stops were provided on the 1826 extension at the Fleece Inn (the end of Castlegate), the bottom of Black Lion Yard and finally the Custom House Tavern at the end of Finkle Street. This situation continued until 1833 when a new station near to St John's Well was opened and locomotive hauled passenger trains were introduced.

Support structure for power supply wires for electric locomotives hauling coal trains from Shildon to Newport. This early railway electrification project was opened by the North Eastern Railway between July 1915 and January 1916 with electric locomotives, operating at 1500 volts DC, hauling trains of up to 1400 tons. During the early 1930s the service became commercially unviable and with the overhead equipment nearing the end of its life, electric locomotive haulage ceased at the end of 1934 to be replaced by steam haulage on 1st January 1935.
