Shildon railway station serves the little community of Shildon in the heart of County Durham along the Tees Valley Line. The station has one of the only Grade II listed signal boxes left and still manually controls the siding connections. Unfortunately, none of the other station buildings still exist having been demolished some time ago. Facilities here including waiting shelters on both platforms, digital passenger information displays and a PA system. It’s an unmanned station with no ticket machines, so passengers are required to either buy them in advance or on board the train with the conductor. There’s an hourly direct service to Bishop Auckland in 7 minutes and departures every two hours southbound to Darlington in 22 minutes.

The biggest draw to Shildon, particularly for train buffs, is the National Railway Museum, also called Locomotion, the largest of its kind in the world and just a stone’s throw away from the station.
