Hammerton railway station serves the villages of Kirk Hammerton and Green Hammerton in North Yorkshire, England. It is located on the Harrogate Line 8.75 miles (14 km) west of York and is operated by Northern who provide all passenger train services to this station.
Like other stations on this line, it is unstaffed so travellers must purchase their tickets on the train or in advance via a smartphone app. There is a waiting room available on the York-bound platform which is open from 0645-2230 (1045-2145 on Sundays). Both platforms also have shelters. The station features step-free access to both platforms via short ramps and access between platforms is via the level crossing. There is also cycle storage for up to 10 bicycles on the York-bound platform and a small car park to the rear of the station building with parking for 5 vehicles. Digital information screens and a long-line P.A system provide train running information for passengers.
The station building here is still partly in railway use, as it houses the office for the signaller who operates the manual level crossing gates and signalling equipment (the points and signals are worked from a covered ground frame on the platform).
