Derker is a stop on the Oldham and Rochdale Line (ORL) of Greater Manchester's light-rail Metrolink system. It opened to passengers on 16 December 2012 and is located in the Derker area of Oldham, England.

History[edit]

Derker railway station was opened, initially on an experimental basis, on 30 August 1985[2] by British Rail to replace Royton Junction station, ½ mile further along the line.

The station closed on 3 October 2009, was converted to light rail, and re-opened as Derker Metrolink station on 16 December 2012. The station is served by a 254 space Park and Ride car park, which is immediately adjacent to the station and is accessed from Cromford Street.[1]
