Railway line near the Grand Union Canal, Hatton - Hatton Station - Chiltern Railways Class 165

A look at the railway line near the Grand Union Canal in Hatton, Warwickshire.

It's on the Chiltern Mainline. And also the Leamington Spa to Birmingham Moor Street line. The other line here is the connection towards Stratford-upon-Avon.


Hatton Station.

Hatton railway station takes the name of the village of Hatton in Warwickshire, England, although it is about 1 mile (1.6 km) from the village. The nearest settlement is Little Shrewley. The station is managed by Chiltern Railways.

Hatton is the junction station at which the lines from Leamington Spa to Stratford-upon-Avon and Birmingham diverge. The station is unstaffed; ticketing is restricted to a 'Permit-to-Travel' machine located at the single entrance to the station on the London-bound (southbound) platform. There is a small shelter on the southbound platform 1 and also one on the island platform (platform 2 for Birmingham-bound services and platform 3 for stations to Stratford upon Avon which bear to the west immediately north of the station. A footbridge links platform 1 with island platform 2/3).

Each platform at the station is equipped with a real-time electronic information departure screen.


At platform 3 was this Chiltern Railways Class 165 service to Stratford-upon-Avon. I would have to wait another hour for my train towards Solihull!
