Scrooby was a railway station on the Great Northern Railway running between Retford and Doncaster. The station served the small village of Scrooby until closed in 1931, though an excursion stopped in 1938. Sunday trains ended in 1924. In 1897 it had a booking office, waiting room, stationmaster's house, signal box and 5 passenger trains a day each way, but no goods facilities. About 1978 the signal box was replaced by Doncaster power box.
