Allens West railway station is in the town of Eaglescliffe within the borough of Stockton-on-Tees, England. It is located on the Tees Valley Line 7 miles (11 km) west of Middlesbrough and 8 miles (13 km) east of Darlington. The station is operated by Northern Rail who provide all passenger train services.
Station facilities here have recently[when?] been improved as part of the Tees Valley Metro project. The package for this station included new fully lit waiting shelters, renewed station signage and the installation of CCTV. The long-line Public Address system (PA) has been renewed and upgraded with pre-recorded train announcements.
Opened by the London and North Eastern Railway during the Second World War to serve a nearby Royal Navy stores depot, the station then passed on to the Eastern Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948.
On Sundays there is an hourly service in each direction.
