Northern Trains Route 4:
Tyne Valley Line
The Newcastle and Carlisle Railway was formed in 1829, and was opened in stages. The section of that line between Haydon Bridge and Greenhead was opened on 18 June 1838, and Bardon Mill, which opened the same day, was one of the intermediate stations on that stretch. It was reduced to unstaffed status in 1967, along with most of the other stations on the line that escaped the Beeching Axe, but the former station house and waiting room still stand (though now in private ownership). There is also an operational signal box here, though it is normally unmanned and 'switched out'.
The station has no ticket facilities (though Northern is planning to install a ticket machine and CIS displays as part of a wider programme of station improvements), so all ticket must be bought prior to travel or on the train. There are basic waiting shelters on each side, along with a public telephone on platform 2; train running information is also available via timetable posters. Step-free access is available to both platforms, though the westbound one requires the use of a barrow crossing.
There is a basic two-hourly service to both Carlisle and Newcastle on weekdays (with one or two extras at peak times) and Saturdays. On Sundays, a similar service frequency operates, with many trains continuing along the Durham Coast Line.
