The original station was opened by the Leeds, Bradford and Halifax Junction Railway on 1 August 1854. This was closed by British Railways on 4 July 1966, the last trains having called on 2 July. The station had platforms opposite each other and were connected by a footbridge.
The station is unmanned and has no ticket machine, passengers must buy tickets on the train or in advance. There are shelters and passenger information screens on each platform, along with a system to provide train running information. Though there are ramps to each platform, disabled access to platform 2 is restricted by the path being narrow and opening out onto a busy main road.
Monday to Saturday daytimes three trains per hour head eastbound towards Leeds, and westbound to Bradford Interchange and Halifax. Two of three go beyond Halifax to Manchester Victoria and the other towards Huddersfield via Brighouse. The service to Huddersfield usually originates at Selby, but only one train per day in the other direction currently runs there. Evenings two trains an hour head eastbound to Leeds and two westbound - one through to Manchester Victoria and one to Huddersfield.
On Sundays there are two trains per hour towards Leeds and to Bradford Interchange. One westbound service runs through to Manchester and the other runs to either Huddersfield or Halifax.
