South Milford railway station serves the villages of South Milford and Sherburn-in-Elmet in North Yorkshire, England. It lies on the Selby Line 13 miles (21 km) east of Leeds.

The station was opened in 1834 as Milford railway station. The name was changed to South Milford station in 1867.[1]

Facilities at the station are limited - there are shelters on each platform and passenger information screens, but no ticket office, footbridge or subway (the platforms are linked by a barrow crossing with warning signs & signals).[2] Travellers must buy their tickets on the train.

The station did have buildings and a signal box up until at least 1979 (the main building was one of the last remaining examples of original Leeds and Selby Railway architecture), but these were subsequently demolished.[3]

Service[edit]

On Monday to Saturday daytimes, the station is served by a Northern hourly service, which runs in each direction between Selby and Leeds, Bradford Interchange & Huddersfield.[4]

During evenings and Sundays, First TransPennine Express services between Hull and Leeds call here, most of which continue on to Manchester Piccadilly.[5]
