Sinnington railway station was a minor station serving the village of Sinnington in North Yorkshire, England on the former Gilling and Pickering (G&P) line opened in 1875. This line followed today's main A170 road corridor from Helmsley to Pickering.

History[edit]

It closed on 31 January 1953[1] for both passengers and freight, with the end of the York-Pickering service via Gilling and Helmsley, and the track was lifted between Pickering and Kirkbymoorside in the same year. By this time there were only 3 trains each way per day.

Public transport to Sinnington today[edit]

Sinnington is served by East Yorkshire bus no. 128 running between Kirkbymoorside and Pickering, Scarborough and Helmsley running up to hourly during the day, but with no Sunday winter service.
