The moth-balled railway line which originally ran from the East Coast mainline at Tursdale to Newcastle via West Rainton, Washington and Pelaw provides a physical demarcation line between the communities of West Rainton and Leamside. Local amenities include two restaurants/pubs, a plant nursery and several livery stables, convenience store, two take aways, pharmacy, hair salon/beauty rooms and a deli.
