Kirk Sandall railway station serves the suburb of Kirk Sandall in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, England. The station is 4 miles (6 km) north of Doncaster on the Sheffield to Hull Line. The current station opened in 1991 and is not on the site of the original station, which was about 0.5 miles (1 km) up the line eastwards.
The station provides hourly service eastbound to Scunthorpe and Hull during the daytime Monday through Saturday. Westbound service comprises two trains per hour to Doncaster with one continuing to Sheffield.
In the evening hourly service is provided toward Hull and Sheffield, and a two-hourly service towards Goole eastbound and Sheffield westbound on Sunday. There are also a few services that go to Scarborough via Bridlington.
From mid-February 2013, all train services at the station had been suspended due to a serious landslip between Hatfield & Stainforth and Thorne Junction. Replacement bus services were in operation to Doncaster and Scunthorpe/Goole. Services resumed in July 2013 following the removal of the slip and major repairs to the trackbed.
