Glaisdale railway station serves the village of Glaisdale in North Yorkshire, England. It is located on the Esk Valley Line and is operated by Northern who provide most of the station's passenger services. The NYMR use this station on gala days, when they run trains along the line as far as Battersby. The station dates from October 1865, when the Castleton to Grosmont line was opened.[1] The signal box was moved northwards in June 1902 to allow the platform to be extended towards the west;engineers simply raised the box onto rails and slid the box into its new position.[2]

The station used to forward building stone, iron and ironstone. Three blast furnaces were located in the village which utilised two sidings built on the north side of the station with access from the east. The iron industry lasted until 1876, but the slag heaps were cleared sometime in the 1880s with the slag being sold to Surrey County Council.[3] Along with many other stations along the line (Egton and Grosmont), the station lost its goods facilities in August 1965.[4]

A passing loop is located here - one of only two remaining on the entire Esk Valley line. The signal box that once operated it can still be seen on the Whitby-bound platform,[5] but the loop points now work automatically and the token machines for the single line block sections either side are operated by the train crew, under the remote supervision of the Nunthorpe signaller. Tokens are also available at the intermediate point of Grosmont station; this allows for the North York Moors Railway to operate on the single line section between Grosmont and Whitby in parallel with the Northern service.[6] Trains only normally cross here on summer Sundays, as the weekday timetable sees only one DMU on the branch at any one time.

In May 2018, the Community Rail Partnership for the Esk Valley Line opened new public toilets on the station.[7]
