Ribblehead Station
Ribblehead station is located at the southern end of the famous Ribblehead Viaduct on the Settle to Carlisle Railway. The station opened in 1876. It is operated by Northern Rail who provide all passenger train services. It was re-opened in 1986 by British Rail with only one platform (the southbound one) in place - the northbound one having been demolished after the station's original closure in May 1970 to allow for the construction of transfer sidings for a nearby quarry. A replacement second platform was opened in 1993 a short distance south of the original site.

This station is now leased by the Settle and Carlisle Railway Trust who have completely restored and refurbished it. There are resident caretakers, a small shop selling memorabilia, and its Visitor Centre includes exhibits about the history of the line and the fight to keep it open. One exhibit in the Visitor Centre is the original station sign and a small exhibition about the Midland Railway company, builders of the line and originally the train operators.
