Strandby station is a Danish railway station, located in the small coastal town of Strandby north of Frederikshavn. The station is located on the Skagensbanen railway line from Skagen to Frederikshavn, between Rimmen halt and Frederikshavn station. The train services are currently operated by Nordjyske Jernbaner which run frequent local train services between Skagen station and Frederikshavn station.

History[edit]

Strandby station in 1975

The station opened in 1924 when the track gauge of Skagensbanen was converted from narrow gauge to standard gauge. As part of the conversion, the right-of-way between Frederikshavn and Rimmen was changed so the railway line passed by Strandby instead of Elling.

Architecture[edit]

The station building was built in 1922 after designs by the architect Ulrik Plesner. In 2006 the station was renovated with new platforms and a new shelter.

Services[edit]

The train services are currently operated by Nordjyske Jernbaner which run frequent local train services between Skagen and Frederikshavn with onward connections by DSB to the rest of Denmark.
