Brampton (Cumbria) Railway Station

Facts and Figures

Brampton railway station is on the Newcastle and Carlisle Railway in northern England, serving the town of Brampton. The station is located about a mile southeast of the town, near the village of Milton. The station opened in 1836 and the first Station Master was Thomas Edmondson who introduced the cardboard tickets and later developed the ticket dating machine. Staff were removed from the station in 1967, with the main buildings demolished in stages during the 1970s and 80s. Until 1923, a short branch line, known locally as 'The Dandy', ran into Brampton itself, terminating at Brampton Town railway station, and the present-day station was called Brampton Junction. This line closed in 1923 and most of the route is now a public footpath. The station was also the junction of another railway serving the local collieries owned by the Earl of Carlisle. Known as Lord Carlisle's Railway, this ran to a junction with the Alston Branch Line at Lambley. Passenger services are provided by Northern Rail, which also manages the station.
