Station approach and level crossing

Cattal railway station serves the village of Cattal in North Yorkshire, England. It is located on the Harrogate Line 10.5 miles (17 km) west of York and is operated by Northern who provide all passenger train services.

The station has a modest car park of 22 spaces and has a section of bike stands. Apart from the crossing keeper, the station is unstaffed and all tickets must be purchased on the train.[1] Step-free access is available to both platforms, with digital information screens and a long-line P.A system for train running information provision.

Cattal is at the western end of a dual track section from Hammerton. Eastbound trains are timetabled to arrive first on the dual track section, so as to clear the single line westwards towards Knaresborough.[2][3] The level crossing here still has manually-operated metal gates and a ground-level signal box.[4] The station buildings are now privately owned.

Services[edit]

Generally there is an hourly service to York eastbound and Leeds via Harrogate westbound. Some additional trains run at weekday peak times.
