We are talking about the bygone age of the train and we have Bill Hawkins to thank for memories of it.

Bill is from Sunderland Antiquarian Society and he is a font of all knowledge as this collection of photos shows.

Take a look through this great collection of photos and then get in touch to tell us more.

We thank Bill for another great collection of images. To find out more about the history of Sunderland, visit the Antiquarian Society’s Facebook page or its website at http://www.sunderland-antiquarians.org
