Arram railway station serves the small village of Arram in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England. It is located on the Yorkshire Coast Line and is operated by Northern Rail who provide all passenger train services. It is mentioned in the song "Slow Train" by Flanders and Swann.

History[edit]

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

When Sectorisation was introduced in the 1980s, the station was served by Regional Railways until the Privatisation of British Railways.

Services[edit]

The station has a limited service compared with others on the route due to the rural nature of the area it serves - currently six services towards Bridlington call and four towards Hull (Monday to Saturday). A single train calls in each direction on Sundays.
