Riccall railway station was a railway station which served the village of Riccall, north of Selby, on the East Coast Main Line. It closed to passengers in 1958 and to goods services in 1964; the station building is now a private dwelling. In 1983 the Selby Diversion was opened which led to the closure of the railway line through Riccall; the former trackbed is now the route of the A19 around the village.
