History

This station was opened by the Great Western Railway on 1 June 1905, one of many halts built to combat the competition from electric trams.[1]

The Great Western Railway was nationalised into British Railways from 1 January 1948 which was in turn privatised in the 1990s.

Services

Dockyard is served by Tamar Valley Line services from Plymouth to Gunnislake,[2] and also by a few trains on the Cornish Main Line to and from Penzance, some of which continue eastwards beyond Plymouth towards Exeter St Davids.[3]

Trains only stop on request – this means that passengers alighting here must tell the conductor that they wish to do so, and those waiting to join must signal clearly to the driver as the train approaches.
