Located in Cumbria's historic Appleby-in-Westmorland, Appleby Railway Station serves the town with connections along the Settle-Carlisle line. First opened in 1876 by Midland Railway, the original brick station building is still in use and is a Grade II listed building. The station is staffed part-time, with brick shelters and waiting rooms available off both platforms. Towards the south end of the platform, there is a water tank used to supply steam locomotives that still occasionally call at Appleby station.

Currently, northbound trains to Appleby call every two hours daily and terminate at Carlisle; southbound trains from Appleby to Leeds also call every two hours. On Sundays, four services operate from Appleby station each direction, increasing to five services a day in summer months. Step-free access, payphones, customer help points, and tickets are all available at the station. The station is a short walk from Appleby Castle, as well as the over 140 listed buildings in the surrounding civil parish.
