Albert Road Halt was a railway station in Plymouth in the English county of Devon. It was located between Ford and Devonport Park tunnels.

History[edit]

The station was opened by the Plymouth, Devonport and South Western Junction Railway on 1 November 1906. Although this company remained independent until the grouping, the London and South Western Railway used its tracks as an entry to Plymouth that did not involve its rival the Great Western Railway. Becoming part of the Southern Railway during the Grouping of 1923, it closed on 13 January 1947, less than a year before nationalisation.

The site today[edit]

The station has now been demolished.
