North Road railway station, also known as North Road (Darlington) on some station announcements and departure boards, serves the northern areas of Darlington and parts of southern County Durham, England. The station is on the Bishop Auckland branch of the Tees Valley Line and is operated by Northern Rail which provides all passenger train services on this line. The station is closely linked with the history of the Stockton and Darlington Railway, being the original Darlington station. The station building, now the Darlington Railway Centre and Museum, is listed Grade II*. Trains do not however stop under the train shed roof, instead using the eastern end of the platform in the open air. The station is on the Bishop Line.
Station facilities here have recently been improved as part of the Tees Valley Metro project. The package for this station included new fully lit waiting shelters, renewed station signage and the installation of CCTV. The long-line public address system has been renewed and upgraded with pre-recorded train announcements.
There is a basic two-hourly service in each direction from the station (including Sundays), increasing to hourly during weekday peak periods. These trains are run by Northern Rail.
