Dockyard railway station is a Great Western Railway suburban station on the Cornish Main Line in Devonport, Plymouth, England. As the name implies, it serves Devonport Dockyard. It is 247 miles 47 chains (398.5 km) from London Paddington via Bristol Temple Meads.
It is also served by trains on the Tamar Valley Line.
The station has basic amenities only: a shelter on platform 1, plus bike racks and timetable poster boards on both sides. No staffing or ticket facilities are available, so intending passengers must buy on board the train or prior to travel. Step-free access is available to each platform.
Dockyard is served by Tamar Valley Line services from Plymouth to Gunnislake  and also by a few trains on the Cornish Main Line to and from Penzance, some of which continue eastwards beyond Plymouth towards Exeter St Davids. Only Tamar Valley line trains call here on Sundays.
Trains only stop on request – this means that passengers alighting here must tell the conductor that they wish to do so, and those waiting to join must signal clearly to the driver as the train approaches.
