Kirk Sandall railway station serves the suburb of Kirk Sandall in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, England. The station is 4 miles (6 km) north of Doncaster on the South Humberside Main Line. The current station opened by British Rail in 1991 and is not on the site of the original station, which was about 0.5 miles (1 km) up the line eastwards.



The station consists of a single concrete island platform located between the inner 'fast' lines on the quad track section of route between Marshgate Junction, Doncaster and Thorne Junction. It is unstaffed but there is a ticket machine near to the car park entrance. A single waiting shelter is the only structure on the platform apart from bench seating, timetable posters and customer information screens. Both platforms are fully accessible by means of a long inclined ramp from the main entrance on the road above.[1]



The station provides an hourly service eastbound to Hull during the daytime Monday through Saturday and a two-hourly service to Scunthorpe. Westbound service comprises either one or two trains per hour to Doncaster.[2] There are no longer any regular services to Meadowhall and Sheffield since the spring 2019 timetable change apart from a single late evening working. Passengers must change at Doncaster for onward connections. The service towards Scunthorpe formerly ran hourly, but was curtailed during the pandemic in 2020 and has not been fully reinstated.

TransPennine Express serves the station with a single eastbound Monday-Saturday service to Cleethorpes in the late evening. There is no return service westbound.

In February 2013 the line northeast of Hatfield and Stainforth station towards Thorne was blocked by the Hatfield Colliery landslip, with all services over the section halted. The line reopened in July 2013.
