Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Backworth railway station served part of Newcastle in the English county of Northumberland, later part of Tyne and Wear. The station, opened as Hotspur, replaced another Backworth station on the line to Morpeth which had been opened as Holywell. Opened by the North Eastern Railway, then joining the London and North Eastern Railway, the station passed to the Eastern Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948. The line had been electrified by the North Eastern Railway in 1904 to fight competition from the newly-built electric tramways, but was de-electrified in the 1960s.
