Historyedit

It was valuable to Luton people not only for passengers but also for facilitating the London market for the town's trade in plaited straw goods The station, and the line to Welwyn, closed in 19651

Following closure to passengers in 1965, the station buildings were quickly demolished despite the line remaining open for freight until 1989/1990 The site of the station was later used as a car park for Luton railway station Throughout the years, various local pressure groups have been supportive of reopening the station as part of a viable branch line between Dunstable and Luton In the mid-1990s, there was a debate about reopening it with either the operation of Diesel Class 158's or electric Class 319'scitation needed

The site has been redeveloped as the new Luton Gateway transport interchange on the Luton to Dunstable Busway guided busway system
