  • Kirk Smeaton railway station is located on the east side of Willowbridge Road in Little Smeaton, North Yorkshire, England. It opened on 22 July 1885, two days after the Hull Barnsley and West Riding Junction Railway and Dock Company opened the line between Hull Cannon Street and Cudworth. The station had two facing platforms, the brick-built main station building in "domestic revival style" was on the down side, while the up platform had a waiting room. At the east end of the down platform was a signal box which controlled the goods yard. The latter consisted of four sidings, but had no goods shed.A branch line between Wrangbrook Junction west of Kirk Smeaton and Denaby and Conisbrough opened in 1894, another between Wrangbrook Junction and Wath in 1904. Trains on these lines ran to and from Kirk Smeaton and beyond, also changing directions there, so that a locomotive turntable was installed in the station.Passenger services between Kirk Smeaton and Denaby and Conisbrough were withdrawn on 1 February 1903, although miners' trains may have continued to run after this date. Passenger services to Wath ended on 8 April 1929. The station closed to passengers on 1 January 1932, when passenger services between South Howden and Cudworth ceased, and remained open for goods traffic until 6 April 1959. After closure to regular passenger services, some excursion trains still ran from the station to Hull Fair and to Leeds football ground, so on 14 October 1933 during Hull Civic Week and on 28 February 1953 to Leeds. At the time of closure, the line and the station were operated by British Railways (North Eastern Region).The station building is now a private residence, part of the down platform is also preserved. The turntable pit has been partially filled in. (en)
