Tadcaster railway station was a railway station on the Harrogate to Church Fenton Line.

History[edit]

The station opened in 1848 as part of the Harrogate to Church Fenton Line of the York and North Midland Railway.[1] Unlike other railway stations on the line, Tadcaster had fully enclosed platforms under a single station canopy.[citation needed]

The station closed to passenger traffic in 1964, goods traffic ended at tascaster in 1966.[1]

Nothing now remains of the station and the site now forms part of an industrial estate just off Station Road with much of the trackbed in the area now largely removed, built on or integrated into the fields which it used to run over. Part of the trackbed is still visible over a bridge over the River Wharfe at nearby Boston Spa.

Sustrans are/were maintaining the line from Thorp Arch northwards past the site of the former Wetherby Racecourse Station to just short of the site of the former Wetherby (Goods) Station.
