Brough railway station serves the town of Brough in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England. It is managed by TransPennine Express, and also served by Northern, 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 (and the two disused platform faces) are still visible, although these were removed in the early 1970s.

The station in 1961

Facilities[edit]

There is a ticket office inside the main building which is manned each day from start of service until 19:45 (18:30 on Sundays) and there is a self-service ticket machine outside the door available 24 hours a day. There is also a vending machine and a refreshment stall open each morning. [1] There is a waiting room on each platform and step-free access to both is available (to platform 2 via ramps onto the footbridge).[2] Automated public address announcements and digital display screens provide train running information.

Services[edit]

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 King's Cross, courtesy of Hull Trains (seven departures each day) and Virgin Trains East Coast. (one morning service outbound, returning in the evening).[3]

Trans-Pennine Express provide an hourly service to Manchester Piccadilly via Leeds whilst the services to Goole, Doncaster and Sheffield and to York via Selby are operated by Northern.[4]

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 per hour (with some two-hour gaps) to York. Some services continue from Hull onto the Yorkshire Coast Line to Beverley, Bridlington and Scarborough.

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.

Northern has promised to introduce an additional hourly service between Leeds and Bridlington. Service frequency improvements will also be implemented on the York & Sheffield routes both on weekdays and on Sundays as part of the new franchise agreement.[5]

In 2015, a small coffee kiosk was opened on Platform 2.
