Goole railway station serves the town of Goole in the East Riding of Yorkshire.

The service is operated and the station is managed by Northern Rail. The station is located 28.3 km (17½ miles) east of Doncaster and 38 km (23¾ miles) west of Hull on the Sheffield-Hull Line and is 52 km (32½ miles) east of Leeds on the Pontefract Line.

It is mentioned in the song "Slow Train" by Flanders and Swann about various closed lines on the British railway network. It mentioned the line to Selby. This ran via the villages of Rawcliffe, Drax & Barlow and was closed in 1964.

In the 1950s the "Yorkshire Pullman" (Hull section) service stopped there, once not so doing as it had unfortunately hit a member of the public just this side of Hook, and once going straight through (luckily the level crossing gates were in its favour).There was a small buffet run by the Kitwood family on the up platform and a small office on the down platform serving a wholesale newspaper business run by Joe Kelbrick; nearby there is a small goods yard used by EWS steel trains. The station saw heavy redevelopment in the 1970s.

ervice

Monday to Saturday daytimes there are two trains an hour eastbound to Hull and towards Doncaster westbound with an hourly service onwards to Sheffield.

Sundays there is generally an hourly fast service between Sheffield and Hull calling at Goole and a two-hourly service all stops to Doncaster and Sheffield that starts/terminates here.

The Pontefract Line has a very limited service of just two trains per day to Knottingley and Leeds - one early in the morning from Goole to Leeds and one train that leaves Leeds for Goole in the afternoon, terminates at Goole then goes back to Leeds by the same route in the opposite direction. These services are only Monday to Saturdays. No service on Sundays.
