Hi Not absolutely sure but I think this is Middlesbrough before the final section of the overall roof was demolished. Most of the roof was destroyed in an air raid. If it is M'bro the train is heading for Thornaby, then probably Eaglescliffe, Dinsdale and Darlington. Some years ago following repairs the body of a German aircrew member was discovered within the station area. Sad, but at least the chap has now been laid to rest in a civilised and respectful manner.
