Welcome to the website of the Friends of Hartlepool Station.

We hope that you find it useful, interesting and informative.

The Friends of Hartlepool Station (FOHS) is a voluntary group of people with an interest in railway matters who, in addition to advocating improvements in East Coast Rail Services, take an active role in improving the environmental appearance of our station, helping to make our station a much more welcoming and attractive place for all current and potential rail users. Mindful of that objective we give of our time collectively in various ways and hopefully, as a result of our Group’s efforts, this station gateway will, in turn, reflect positively on our town and enrich the passenger travel ‘experience’.
