Northallerton station - sidings
Northallerton station - sidings
All that is left of the railway yards at Northallerton (apart from the avoiding line taken by non-stop trains to Middlesbrough) is this pair of sidings on the up side just north of the station. An old map shows them to have been factory sidings originally, with a loading platform (probably never used for passenger trains). See the Grid Square Discussion for opinions about what other uses they may have had.
Northallerton railway station
Opened by the Great North of England Railway in 1841, Northallerton became a junction station of the North Eastern Railway from 1854. It lost its branch line services in the 1960s, and the layout was simplified in the 1970s so that it now only has two through platforms and no bays. A new station building was erected next to the car park in (2006? - to be confirmed). More detailed histories and details of current operations can be found on other websites.
