Brough railway station serves the town of Brough in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England. It is managed by First TransPennine Express, and also served by Northern Rail, First Hull Trains and Virgin Trains East Coast.
The station was originally opened by the Hull and Selby Railway in 1840 and at one time had four tracks passing through. The course of the additional outer tracks can still be made out, although these were removed in the early 1970s.
There is a ticket office inside the main building which is often manned, and there is a self-service ticket machine outside the door available 24 hours a day; there is also a vending machine. This station is managed by First TransPennine Express.
All services on the various routes out of Hull call at the station, giving it good links with many towns and cities in the rest of Yorkshire. There are also a number of through trains each day to and from London Kings Cross, courtesy of First Hull Trains (seven departures each day) and Virgin Trains East Coast. (one a.m. service outbound, returning in the evening).
Currently there are two trains per hour to Doncaster, one serving most local stations, the other limited stop and extended to Sheffield, and one train every two hours (with extras at peak times) to York. Some services continue on the Yorkshire Coast Line to Beverley, Bridlington and Scarborough, avoiding Hull.
Sunday sees an hourly service to Sheffield and every two hours to York & Manchester (with some extra trains in the afternoon). There are now also a few through trains to Scarborough all year since the December 2009 timetable change.
