Simon Bradley said on the 04/07/2015:
Definitely the Royal Grammar School. There was correspondence about the photo in the old boys' magazine about five years ago, and some individuals were even identifies.
Stephen Tyley said on the 03/02/2015:
The boys are probably on a school trip, judging from their smart uniforms. The light grey blazers most likely the royal blue of the Newcastle Royal Grammar School. The Castle Keep stands like a medieval signal box above the diamond crossing at the east end of Central Station and still offers an excellent viewpoint for trainspotters, while safely segregating them from the hazards (?!) of platform ends. Many ticket inspectors were notoriously reluctant to allow young trainspotters inside the barriers, even with platform tickets.

Judging by the angle of his head, he's actually looking at a different loco not visible in the photo (it's somewhere to the left) on one of the other tracks.

I am the trainspotter on the bicycle with school blazer. A few of us used to gather at this location almost every day.
pete hobbs said on the 02/01/2016:
the pictures bring back memories as I used to to work there
Marti said on the 26/05/2013:
Great photographs of years gone by. I was never a train-spotter, but looking through these photos makes me wish I was!
However, I've noticed that most of these boys were wearing long trousers, including many younger ones. The above photo is an example: Although the lad on the bike may be 12 or 13, the other two look no older than nine or ten - and this was back in 1963. I wore short trousers until I left primary school in 1968, as did most other boys. However, a few managed to sneak into long trousers a year or two earlier! Anyway, thanks for all the photos and comments. I'd say it brings back memories for many a train-spotter of 50 or 60 years ago.
