Cramlington railway station is on the East Coast Main Line in the United Kingdom, serving the town of Cramlington, Northumberland. It is 278 miles 50 chains (448.4 km) down the line from London King's Cross, between Manors and Morpeth. Its three-letter station code is CRM.
All services are operated by Northern, which also manages the station. It was opened (along with the line) in 1847. In 2018/19, passenger usage at the station crossed into six figures at 107,800 entries and exits.
The station is unstaffed. In February 2019, the local Council installed a ticket machine on the southbound platform. The machine allows contactless, and card for tickets, as well as being able to collect tickets. Travel tickets can still be purchased on board the train. There are waiting shelters on both platforms (but no other permanent buildings), along with timetable posters and next train real-time information boards to offer train running details. Step-free access is available to both platforms, though the footbridge linking them has steps.
Northumberland County Council and the local rail users group SENRUG is campaigning to relocate the station to a new site 200 metres south of its present position, in order to better serve the town's Manor Walks shopping centre, Westmorland Retail Park and main employment areas. The proposed site would also allow for the construction of a dedicated bus-rail interchange, a larger car park and serve several residential estates to the west built in the 1960s and 1970s.
Northern Route 1
There are hourly local services to Morpeth and also to Carlisle via Newcastle Central. At peak times a few services continue to Chathill. There is an irregular but roughly two-hourly Sunday service, introduced in December 2017 as part of a new franchise agreement. Further service enhancements were implemented in May 2018. Regular weekday through services to Hexham and Carlisle will also form part of the upgrade - these were introduced at the May 2019 timetable change.
