The new station at the back of The James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough opened on the 18th May 2014 for patients, visitors and staff. The new station will help alleviate car parking pressure at the hospital and will also ease congestion on Marton Road.

Sixteen trains a day, in each direction, are calling at the hospital and other stations on the line between Middlesbrough and Nunthorpe. Four trains a day, in each direction, connect the stations along the Esk Valley as far as Whitby. There are also two extended services that go beyond Nunthorpe; the 12:59 calls at Battersby Junction & Danby ONLY and the 17:03 calls at Great Ayton & Battersby Junction.

EVRDC advocates a more frequent train service between Nunthorpe and Whitby. To voice your support, please write to or email EVRDC with why an improved service is so important to the Esk Valley and Whitby communities.

The station is ideally placed for visitors to the hospital, especially residents from the North Yorkhire part of the Whitby to Middlesbrough railway line.

James Cook Station

The new facility, costing around 2.2 million, has a single platform on the Middlesbrough to Whitby route (on the hospital side of the railway line) and provides a fully-lit waiting shelter and seating, full CCTV coverage and passenger information including an electronic screen and public address announcements.

The project has been developed in partnership between Tees Valley Unlimited, the trust, Middlesbrough Council, Network Rail and Northern Rail, with the train service managed by Northern Rail.
