East Coast Main Line


The Northallerton to Eaglescliffe Line runs between the towns of Northallerton and Eaglescliffe. It connects the East Coast Main Line to the Tees Valley Line. It was built by the Leeds Northern Railway as part of their main line from Leeds to Stockton (via Harrogate and Ripon) which opened on 2 June 1852,[1] although the connection to the ECML at the Northallerton end was not opened for a further four years.

The only current stations on the line are:

A number of old stations that used to serve towns and villages on the line were closed between 1954 and the end of local passenger services over the route in September 1965, with those at Picton and Yarm being the last to go, although that at Yarm has since reopened.

Services

Services are run by TransPennine Express between Manchester Airport and Middlesbrough (and to Newcastle using the Durham Coast Line during diversions - it usually travels via Darlington and Durham on the East Coast Main Line). Services are roughly hourly. This is part of the North TransPennine route.

The line is also part of the Grand Central route between Sunderland and London Kings Cross.
