Haddenham & Thame Parkway (HDM)

Haddenham & Thame Parkway serves the two villages in the station name (though is physically in Haddenham) and as the name also implies has extensive parking facilities. The station is on the Buckinghamshire-Oxfordshire border, the two villages it serves being in either county.

Type: National Rail
(Chiltern Main Line)
Station code: HDM
Opened: 1987
Platforms: 2
The station was opened by British Rail in 1987 about 800m away from the site of the original Haddenham station which closed (along with Thame station) in 1963 [1]. Originally the station just had a single platform due to the single line nature of the Chiltern Main Line at the time.

The line was (re)doubled in 1998 and an extra platform added to the station to serve it [2]. Both platforms have been lengthened and the station building extended in the 2010s. Car park capacity has also been increased.
