Northern Trains Route 4:
Tyne Valley Line
As of the December 2019 timetable change, Northern operate an hourly service (Monday to Saturday) between Hexham and Nunthorpe, with additional trains also calling at the station during the morning and evening peak. On a Sunday, an hourly service operates between Carlisle and Nunthorpe, with some trains continuing as far as Whitby.
A landslip in early January 2016, between Corbridge and Riding Mill (caused by heavy rain and a broken drainage pipe) led to the temporary suspension of services between Prudhoe and Hexham, whilst repairs to the track bed and adjacent cutting walls were carried out.
The line reopened on 8 February 2016, following the removal of over 35,000 tonnes of earth from the site.
Since 2010, many of the facilities at the railway station have been upgraded. These upgrades include an extended car park, additional cycle lockers, new benches and station signage, digital information displays, and a repainted bridge.
A ticket vending machine has also been provided, to allow travellers to buy tickets prior to boarding, or to collect pre-paid tickets.
The station has disabled access to both platforms, as well as a stepped footbridge.
