Thorne South railway station is one of two stations serving the ex mining town of Thorne in South Yorkshire, England. The station is 9.75 miles (16 km) north of Doncaster on the Doncaster to Cleethorpes line and unstaffed and has only two brick shelters on the platforms. The other station in the town is Thorne North for trains towards Hull.

Service[edit]

Monday to Saturday daytimes an hourly service from Sheffield and Doncaster to Scunthorpe calls at Thorne South. There is no Sunday service.

From February through July 2013, all rail services at the station were suspended due to the line being blocked by a major landslip near Hatfield and Stainforth. A replacement bus service operated between Doncaster & Scunthorpe, serving Thorne South and all other intermediate stations.[1][2][3]
