The station was opened in 1834 as Milford railway station. The name was changed to South Milford station in 1867.
Facilities at the station are limited - there are shelters on each platform and passenger information screens, but no ticket office, footbridge or subway. 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.
On Monday to Saturday daytimes, the station is served by a Northern hourly local service, which runs in each direction between Selby and Leeds. These no longer run through to destinations on the Calder Valley line (since the winter 2018 timetable change) - passengers now need to change at Leeds.
