Pollard was a railway station on the Shelbourne line between the townships of Bradford and Nuggetty.[1] It was originally called Bradford Station.

There was a ticket office, shelter and toilets.

There were no sidings so goods trains would leave trucks behind at Pollard on the way back to Maldon for the next train to push them into Shelbourne and then to their intended destination. Nothing remains of the station today, other than the platform mound.
