"The Lancashire, Derbyshire and East Coast Railway," Trowbridge: The Oakwood Press]

The first station here had been opened by North Midland Railway in 1840 It was replaced by the Midland Railway in 1873 by a station that was renamed "Killamarsh West". Then in 1892, the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway opened a station (later called "Killamarsh Central") when it began to build south into Derbyshire.

The LD&ECR wished to extend into Sheffield using the MS&LR's lines but was rebuffed, and instead joined the Midland's line at Beighton Junction, to join the Sheffield District Railway at Treeton Junction.
