Armathwaite Railway Station

Facts and Figures

Armathwaite railway station is a railway station which serves the village of Armathwaite in Cumbria, England. The station is managed by Northern Rail, who operate all trains serving it. It is now, since the closure of Cotehill (1952), Cumwhinton (1956) and Scotby (1942) stations, the final stop on the Settle-Carlisle Line before the terminus at Carlisle. It was opened in May 1876, closed in May 1970 when local passenger trains ceased on the route and reopened by British Rail in July 1986. By then, the original station building had been sold for private use so a passenger shelter was built at the other end of the platform.
