The station buildings in 1995

Helmsley railway station served the market town of Helmsley in North Yorkshire from 1875 until 1964, although the regular passenger service (and the line from Kirkbymoorside east to Pickering) ceased in 1953.

From here to Pickering the line ran almost parallel to today's A170 trunk road.

There was no railway over the area between Helmsley and Thirsk via Sutton Bank. Instead, there was a route south of Helmsley that passed through a cutting at Caulkeys Bank, Nunnington, and then turned west towards Gilling, where the Thirsk and Malton (T&M) line from Pilmoor (at the East Coast Main Line) was met. To get to Thirsk, trains would have had to travel to Gilling and Pilmoor first, turning north.
