The travellers.

Early commuters.

Early morning commuters take the Metro train from South Shields to Newcastle-upon-Tyne. The Tyne Wear Metro Rapid Transit System transports thousands of commuters every day, and links South Shields with Sunderland and Newcastle International Airport. The 17 mile overland and underground travel to Newcastle is FAST (look out of the windows), the journey is over in around 20 minutes!
Where does this fit in with this month’s “theme” for DP you may ask? They are crowding the “doorways”!
