Sinfin North Station was a railway station on the Sinfin branch in Derby, England. It opened on 4 October 1976 and closed on 17 May 1993.[1] The station was built by British Rail. After closure, a service was provided by a taxi until 1998.

The station had one platform and was not publicly accessible, due to being located between works sites.

In 2007 the platform was in a poor condition, and a clause in the decision approving closure required that the platform could not be demolished until after 21 May 2008 in case of any operator wishing to reopen it.[2] The platform is still in place although the current operator East Midlands Trains has no plans to reopen the branch.
