History[edit]

The station in an epoch postcard

The line was opened on 18 May 1939, becoming however the station only become operational on 20 July 1940[1] because of the need to complete several systems[2] and a lack of rolling stock.[3] It was originally equipped with two tracks.

From 21 January 1961, in advance to the end of the concession to the "Società Ferrovia Biella-Novara (SFBN)" company, the management of the railway line passed to the state and the operation of the station was assumed by Ferrovie dello Stato.[4]

From 1992 the station was declassified to a railway stop, and remains in operation, but with only one track and one platform.

In the year 2000, the plant management passed to Rete Ferroviaria Italiana, which is classified in the category "Bronze".[5]
