Middlesbrough railway station
Middlesbrough railway station serves the large town of Middlesbrough in the borough of Middlesbrough and the ceremonial county of North Yorkshire, England. The station is managed by First TransPennine Express and has two platforms. There are also two avoiding freight lines to the north of the station.

Although the first railway was built in the area as long ago as 1830 as an extension of the Stockton and Darlington Railway and extended eastwards to Redcar in 1846, the current station dates from 1877 ”“ it was designed by the North Eastern Railway's chief architect William Peachey with an ornate Gothic style frontage. It featured an ornate overall roof which was short in length, narrow in width, high in relation to its width and rising to a distinct point (ellipse). This was destroyed by German bombs on 3 August 1942.

The station is served by a number of routes: The Tees Valley Line from Bishop Auckland & Darlington to Saltburn. The Esk Valley Line to Whitby via Nunthorpe and Grosmont. The Durham Coast Line to Newcastle via Hartlepool and Sunderland. The North Trans-Pennine line to Manchester Airport via York (operated by First TransPennine Express) All routes apart from that to Manchester are operated by Northern Rail. On average (Mon - Sat), there is a train every hour to Newcastle (some of which continue along the Tyne Valley Line) and to Manchester Airport, every 30 minutes to Darlington & Saltburn and every second hour to Bishop Auckland. There is a limited service (four departures per day) on the Whitby branch with a few extra trains as far as Nunthorpe. Sundays see an hourly service to Darlington/Saltburn, one train every two hours to Newcastle, Bishop Auckland and Manchester Airport and an irregular service to Whitby (five departures per day during the summer months only - some trains run through to/from Darlington or Newcastle). First Transpennine also operate a once daily return service to Liverpool.
