Shireoaks railway station serves the village of Shireoaks in Nottinghamshire, England. It was opened by the Sheffield and Lincolnshire Junction Railway in 1849. The station is 13 34 miles (22.1 kilometres) east of Sheffield on the Sheffield-Lincoln line.

Facilities[edit]

The station is unstaffed and has no ticket provision - all tickets must be purchased prior to travel or on the train. The main building that used to be located here has been demolished, though there are brick waiting shelters still standing on both platforms.[1] Train running information is offered via timetable posters, a help point on platform 1 and CIS screens. Step-free access is available to both platforms via the level crossing at the eastern end.[2]

Service[edit]

Monday to Saturdays, there is an hourly service to Sheffield (and beyond) westbound and Lincoln Central eastbound with a few extra trains at peak times. Also on Saturdays only, there are three trains to/from Cleethorpes via Brigg.[3]

On Sundays, there is a two-hourly service in each direction from early afternoon.
