Croft Spa is a small wayside station on the East Coast Main Line at the Southern
tip of County Durham. It is unusual for never having had a goods yard- this was
because Croft Goods was served by the Stockton & Darlington Railway’s Croft branch.
Set in 1960 the station sees the usual diet of expresses, fast freight and the occasional
slower goods train. One feature train is an 8-coach troop express hauled by a tender-first
V2. The only stopping passenger services at Croft Spa were trains to and from the
Richmond branch. Croft Spa was the place where Charles Lutwig Dodgson (Lewis Carroll)
spent some of his formative years.
Control is DCC. N-gauge.
