History

The station opened on 19 June 1978[2] and is situated on a re-sited portion of route that was commissioned on that date by British Rail to allow the previous alignment to be used for an expansion of the steelworks site. This included a station at Warrenby Halt that the current structure replaced.[3]

According to the SRA, only 486 entries and exits were recorded for the station during the 2004–05 period, mainly due to there being no public access to and from the station (it being located on Tata Steel Europe property) and also due to the limited service. However, the numbers had increased to 1,570 entries and exits by the 2014–15 period.

The majority of the steelworks, including the Redcar blast furnace, Redcar and South Bank coke ovens and the BOS plant at Lackenby closed in 2015 resulting in a drop in passenger usage of the station from the previous year. In the 2016–17 period the entries and exits dropped to only 50, becoming the fourth least used station in Britain.[4] In the 2017–18 period, it became the least used station in Britain with only 40 passengers and surpassed Shippea Hill.[1]

Work is beginning on regenerating the site of the former steelworks by the South Tees Development Corporation. As part of their vision they are hoping to revamp the station and improve the service frequency.[5]

In 2019, Geoff Marshall visited the station as part of his least used station series. During filming, it was noted that while passengers could get off at the station as it is owned by Network Rail, the surrounding area is private property and therefore passengers are unable to leave the station.[6]

Services

Monday to Saturday there are two trains in each direction. The two eastbound services serve all stations to Saltburn with one originating from Hexham (coming via Newcastle, Sunderland and Middlesbrough) and the other originating from Bishop Auckland (via Darlington and Middlesbrough). The two westbound services both originate from Saltburn and continue to Bishop Auckland.

There is no Sunday service.[7]
