British Steel Redcar railway station was opened to serve the huge Teesside Steelworks site. It is located in the borough of Redcar and Cleveland and the ceremonial county of North Yorkshire, England. It is located on the Tees Valley Line and operated by Northern Rail who provide all passenger train services.

The station opened on 19 June 1978[1] and is situated on a re-sited portion of route that was commissioned on that date to allow the previous alignment to be used for an expansion of the steelworks site. This included a station at Warrenby Halt that the current structure replaced.[2]

According to the SRA only 486 tickets to or from British Steel Redcar station were sold during 2004–05 as there is no public access to and from the station (it being located on Tata Steel Europe property) and it has a very limited service.

The station's original Ditra Systems Public Address System (PA) has been disabled.

Services[edit]

On Monday to Fridays, only one train per day in each direction between Middlesbrough and Saltburn serves the station.

On Saturdays the station is only served in one direction, by a train from Saltburn to Bishop Auckland. There is no Sunday service.
