Description:
Redcar Central railway station serves the town of Redcar in the borough of Redcar and Cleveland and the ceremonial county of North Yorkshire. It is located on the Tees Valley Line and operated by Northern Rail who provide all passenger train services. Redcar Central is a staffed Monday to Saturday but not on Sunday. There is also a waiting room that is open Monday to Saturday.

Unusually the two platforms are not opposite each other as is the case with most stations. Platform 1 is further west than the second and there is a bridge over the track which connects the two. There is a level crossing over one of the major roads into Redcar at the end of platform 1 which can also be used to cross over the track. Nearby is the Redcar Station business park which houses a few local business units.
