Edale railway station serves the rural village of Edale in the Derbyshire Peak District, in England. It was opened in 1894 on the Midland Railway's Dore and Chinley line (now the Hope Valley Line), becoming an unstaffed halt in 1969.
The station has two platforms with no level crossing or footbridge. To change platforms, there is an underpass located next to the road in the village. The station is managed and served primarily by Northern using rolling stock such as the Class 142 Pacer and Class 150 Sprinter, with the occasional Class 156 Super Sprinter. East Midlands Trains services are usually run with Class 158 Express Sprinter units.
The station is about 5 minutes walk from the centre of the village, where the Pennine Way begins, with the Nags Head public house being 'the official start of the Pennine Way'.
The typical off-peak is one train every two hours (with peak time extras) to Sheffield and to Manchester Piccadilly via Marple, provided solely by Northern. This is increased on Saturdays to one train per hour in each direction and on Sundays it returns to being two-hourly.
East Midlands Trains provide the first service of the day to Liverpool Lime Street via Warrington Central. The final return working of the day starts from Liverpool Lime Street and continues on to Nottingham via Sheffield. All other services are provided by Northern. A normal weekday service operates on most bank holidays.
