Hunmanby railway station serves the village of Hunmanby in North Yorkshire, England. It is located on the Yorkshire Coast Line and is operated by Northern who provide all passenger train services. The station opened for traffic on 20 October 1847 and is the point at which the single track section from Bridlington ends, the line being double north of here towards Filey.
As originally built, the line was double throughout but the section to Bridlington was singled as an economy measure in 1973. Further modernisation work saw the signal box here abolished and removed in 2000, with the level crossing automated and remaining semaphore signals replaced by colour lights operated remotely from Seamer.
The station is unstaffed and passengers must purchase their ticket on the train. The station buildings remain and are now privately occupied - the main waiting room and the separate ladies' waiting room having been converted to holiday accommodation. Step-free access is available to both platforms via the automatic level crossing at the south end, whilst train running information can be obtained from timetable posters or telephone.
Local initiatives, such as door-to-door delivery of timetables in Hunmanby and surrounding villages, lead to a significant increase in patronage of this station between 2006 and 2008 and the increased number of passengers using this station has continued in subsequent years.
Nine trains call here in each direction on weekdays and Saturdays, with six trains in each direction on Sundays (all year round since the December 2009 timetable change).. From the May 2019 timetable change, there will be an hourly service each way until mid-evening (including Sundays).
