Scarborough Londesborough Road railway station was built as an excursion station to ease operating pressure at Scarborough Central in the holiday resort of Scarborough. Excursion trains from all over the country could be routed into it rather than the main Central station to disembark their passengers before heading onwards to the Whitby branch line to be stabled in carriage sidings at Northstead/Gallows Close on the town's northern outskirts. Return services would follow the same route in the opposite direction to load up before departure.
It was opened on 8 June 1908 by the North Eastern Railway, but it was not advertised in public timetables until 1933. It was then closed to passenger trains by British Railways on 25 August 1963 but used for stabling coaching stock until its official closure, on 4 July 1966. 
The station building and remains of the 14 coach long platform can still be seen from trains on the Yorkshire Coast Line and on the York to Scarborough section of the North TransPennine route on the west side of the tracks approaching Scarborough.
