Ryder Brow railway station serves the Gorton and Ryder Brow areas of Manchester, England. The station is 2¾ miles (4 km) south east of Manchester Piccadilly on the Hope Valley Line and opened in 1985 by British Rail.

Facilities[edit]

The station is unmanned and has basic amenities only - waiting shelters and timetable posters on both platforms and a payphone on platform 2. No ticket provision is offered, so these must be bought prior to travel or on the train. Access to the platforms is via stepped ramps from the nearby road, so the station is not suitable for wheelchair users.[1]

Service[edit]

Monday to Friday there is an hourly service to Manchester Piccadilly northbound and New Mills Central southbound, whilst on Saturdays the frequency is the same but the service runs to Rose Hill Marple until the evening (reverting to New Mills thereafter). There is no Sunday service.[2]
