Facilities

The station is unmanned and has no permanent buildings other than standard waiting shelters on each platform. No ticket provision is available here, so intending passengers must purchase tickets prior to travel or on the train. Facilities here were improved in April 2013. The package for this station included new fully lit waiting shelters, renewed station signage, digital CIS displays and the installation of CCTV. The long-line Public Address system (PA) has been renewed and upgraded with pre-recorded train announcements.[1] Train running information can be obtained via the public payphone on platform 2 and timetable posters. Step-free access is available to both platforms via the nearby level crossing.[2]

History

Opened by the London and North Eastern Railway during the Second World War as an unadvertised station to serve a nearby Royal Navy stores depot, the station then passed on to the Eastern Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948. Following the construction of new housing in the area the station became an advertised public station on 3 October 1971 [3]

When Sectorisation was introduced, the station was served by Regional Railways until the Privatisation of British Railways. The level crossing here was upgraded by Network Rail in the autumn 2013 from automatic half barriers to full controlled barriers with obstacle detection after several 'near misses' resulting from pedestrians avoiding the lowered barriers and crossing the tracks in front of approaching trains.[4]

Service

Monday to Saturdays, there are two trains per hour westbound to Darlington and eastbound to Middlesbrough and beyond (Saltburn).[5] Certain westbound trains continue beyond Darlington to Bishop Auckland (every two hours off-peak, hourly at peak times).

On Sundays there is an hourly service in each direction, with one train every second hour extended to Bishop Auckland westbound.
