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 in Buckinghamshire, between Bicester North or Bicester Village and Princes Risborough.
Chiltern 165 001 departs North

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 was closed (along with Thame station) in 1963 [1]. Originally the new 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. Access between the platforms is via a road bridge which crosses the lines. Chiltern maintain a regular service between London Marylebone and Birmingham Moor Street or Oxford.
