Notes: This two platform station on the Sunderland – South Hylton line opened on 31 March 2002. At Pallion the original route of the Sunderland – Durham route has been abandoned, and the Metro station is on a new alignment about 100yd north of its predecessor. On each platform there are buildings in breezeblock, the larger of the two being on the Sunderland-bound platform where an awning provides shelter.
