Station


Name and dates

Angerton (1862-1952)

Opened on the Wansbeck Railway.


Description

This was a single platform station with a passing loop. The passenger platform was on the north side of the loop and loading banks on the south side. There was a two storey stone built station building and a level crossing at the west end. The loop extended westwards across the level crossing. A short siding off the loop, approached from the east, served a loading bank at the west end of the station.

The loop was altered to provide faster running, the goods line becoming a loop and kink at the west end of the passenger line smoothed. A signal box opened in 1893, closing in 1964. The line closed completely in 1966. The station had closed to passengers in 1952.

The station building survives, in use as a house. Level crossing gate posts survive, as do gate posts on the entry to the goods yard.

To the west of the station the line crosses the two arch Angerton Viaduct.
