Sights to see on London-to-Edinburgh train?

Are there any interesting sights to look for along the train route to Edinburgh? This is a morning Virgin train.

From south to north I always lookout for these:

Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium
Peterborough Mosque
Durham Cathedral
The Tyne Bridges
Alnmouth
Holy Island & Bamburgh Castle
River Tweed
The England/Scotland border sign
Torness Nuclear Power station
Bass Rock

and keep your eyes peeled for deer in the fields

Eyes peeled at Durham & Newcastle stations, looking to the right of the train as it heads north. I never tire of seeing the bridges over the Tyne at Newcastle.

Also look for the Angel of the North statue as you head towards Newcastle.

Thanks for the tips! The video gives a good feel of the landscapes and started us into spending much more time on Youtube features about Edinburgh.
