The below chart shows platform lengths for Newcastle station.

Newcastle Platform Lengths

Red indicates platforms at the West end of the station, Green platforms at the East end of the station, Yellow the middle section between the signals on the through platforms e.g. between 511 and 516 on platforms 5 and 6..

Platform lengths are given in metres, with the gridlines at 46m intervals. This is estimated to be close to two typical car-lengths.

* - Full length trains will overhang the track section beyond the signal but will still be on the platform.
