British Steel Redcar railway station was opened to serve the huge Teesside Steelworks site. It is located in the borough of Redcar and Cleveland and the ceremonial county of North Yorkshire, England. It is located on the Tees Valley Line and operated by Northern who provide all of the passenger services.
The station opened on 19 June 1978 and is situated on a re-sited portion of route that was commissioned on that date by British Rail to allow the previous alignment to be used for an expansion of the steelworks site. This included a station at Warrenby Halt that the current structure replaced.
According to the SRA, only 486 entries and exits were recorded for the station during the 2004–05 period, mainly due to there being no public access to and from the station (it being located on Tata Steel Europe property) and also due to the limited service. However, the numbers had increased to 1,570 entries and exits by the 2014–15 period.
The majority of the steelworks, including the Redcar blast furnace, Redcar and South Bank coke ovens and the BOS plant at Lackenby closed in 2015 resulting in a drop in passenger usage of the station from the previous year.
