Introduction The Durham Coast Line (DCL) is a rural route along the east coast of England. connecting Sunderland, Middlesbrough & Newcastle, these services are backed up by the Tyne & Wear Metro's Green Line, running between Newcastle Airport, through Newcastle & Sunderland, and Finishing at South Hylton. Welcome to the Durham Coast, connecting Middlesbrough, Newcastle and Sunderland, this route connects three major places, but remains very rural like. Supported by the Tyne & Wear Metro's Green Line between South Hylton & Airport, for a more rapid service, you'll have plenty to do in TSW2: Durham Coast Line Rolling Stock This route features 2 Trains as Standard, you can guess one from the Introduction.

(1 each way) The Metro has a train every 12 minutes per line (5tph), meaning a train every 6 minutes between Pelaw and South Gosport (10tph). At evening this decreases to every 15 minutes (4tph) with the services between Pelaw and South Gosport being 8tph. Final Words I have made this route to be set in 2015 - a year before Arriva took over the Northern Franchise. So why this? There have been countless requests for the Tyne & Wear Metro, so why not make half of it and throw in some conventional rail as well? As for the length I don't know how long the green line on its own is, so I can't give a reliable awnser. There are 38 stations, however. Thanks for reading. I know this is a bit shorter of a suggestion than normal it's just information on some things like the Green Line length is hard to find, and there just isn't much to go over.
