Dinting railway station serves the village of Dinting near Glossop in Derbyshire, England. The station is on the Manchester-Glossop Line 20 km (12¼ miles) east of Manchester Piccadilly. Prior to the Woodhead Line closure in 1981 Dinting was a station on a major cross Pennine route. At Piccadilly, you can access other lines, such as Stockport, through New Mills Newtown and on to Buxton.
An earlier station had been opened as "Glossop" by the Sheffield, Ashton-Under-Lyne and Manchester Railway in 1842, but was renamed when the Glossop branch opened in 1845. In 1847 a temporary "Glossop Junction" station was built, on the site of which the present station was built in 1848. Although named Dinting, it mainly serves the people of Gamesley.
For most of the day all trains use platform 2. However before 9 am Platform 1 is the departure platform for services to Glossop via Hadfield, with Platform 2 being used for trains to Manchester Piccadilly. From 16:30 to 19:30 this reverses with trains to Hadfield via Glossop departing from Platform 2 and Manchester Piccadilly services using Platform 1. This means that customers wishing to travel from Glossop to Hadfield (morning peak) and Hadfield to Glossop(evening peak) must change at Dinting. Immediately adjacent to the station is the Dinting viaduct.
Dinting is considered to be part of the GMPTE rail network being only a short distance from the administrative boundary, the same is for Glossop and Hadfield stations. This means that ticketing such as rail rangers, season tickets and integrated multi-mode ticketing is the same as Greater Manchester rather than Derbyshire. Derbyshire County Council's Derbyshire Wayfarer ticket is not valid on trains on the Glossop Line, however it can be used on buses in the area.
In the 1990s and early 2000s a new station was proposed a short distance down the line across the viaduct at Gamesley, with funding in place at one point for the project to go forward after a feasibility study. However such plans have never come to fruition and the future of a new railway station at Gamesley now looks in doubt for the foreseeable future.[when?]
There is generally a half-hourly daily daytime service from Dinting to Manchester Piccadilly and Glossop/Hadfield. Though some peak journeys go direct to Hadfield missing out Glossop.
Trains operate hourly evenings and Sundays in each direction.
