Acklington railway station serves the village of Acklington in Northumberland, England.

The station is located on the East Coast Main Line, although in the May 2010 timetable the only trains calling at Acklington are one northbound and two southbound local services operated on Mondays to Saturdays (and none on Sundays) by Northern Rail, who also manage the station.

History[edit]

Opened by the York, Newcastle and Berwick Railway, then joining the North Eastern Railway, it became part of the London and North Eastern Railway during the Grouping of 1923. The line then passed on to the Eastern Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948.

When Sectorisation was introduced, the station was served by Regional Railways until the Privatisation of British Railways. Intercity Sector trains passed through on the East Coast Main Line.
