Thurnscoe railway station

Thurnscoe railway station

Thurnscoe railway station serves Thurnscoe in South Yorkshire, England. It is located on the Wakefield Line 24 km (15 miles) north of Sheffield railway station. Only stopping services call at the station. It was opened as a brand new station in 1989.

Although it passed through the three settlements of Thurnscoe, neighbouring Goldthorpe and Bolton-on-Dearne, the Swinton & Knottingley railway only provided one station for the area, at Bolton; both the other settlements were served by stations on other lines. Until 1961 this station was called Bolton on Dearne for Goldthorpe and was served by Sheffield-York stopping services.

By the late 1980s the low demand for York-bound passengers meant that only a handful of stopping trains used the line. South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive, responding to increasing demand for Sheffield-Leeds passengers in the area, and a lack of capacity on the Sheffield-Barnsley-Leeds line, sponsored an hourly service via Bolton, and opened brand new stations at Goldthorpe and Thurnscoe.


Monday to Saturday there is an hourly service to Sheffield southbound and to Leeds northbound. Sundays there is a two-hourly service in each direction
