Trains to South Bank

The current South Bank train station, two and a half miles east of Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire, is on the Tees Valley Line. It originally opened in 1984 as one of three stations to serve the once heavily industrial surrounding area. When Cargo Fleet and Grangetown closed in the 1990s, South Bank remained. Regular services leave the station for Bishop Auckland, Darlington and Middlesbrough, juts five minutes away, from platform 1. Over on platform 2, trains depart on the twenty-minute journey to Saltburn. While the area to the south of the station is home to a wide selection of shops, pubs and restaurants, including several large supermarkets, eagle-eyed wanderers will spot all manner of art installations and memories of days gone by. A short stroll north leads to the banks of the River Tees, home to the area's main industry - its shipyards.

Station details & facilities

Entirely unstaffed, with no ticket facilities whatsoever, South Bank station is little more than two platforms connected by a steel footbridge, accessed by stairs only. There are two entrances to the platforms. Normanby Road, on the platform 1 side, has a couple of bike racks, and Smiths Dock Road, on the platform 2 side, has a drop off / pick up turning area. Rather unusually, the platforms sit diagonally opposite each other, with platform 1 home to a single shelter.
