- Holmes railway station
Holmes Station was a
railway stationin Rotherham, South Yorkshire. The station served the communities of Masbroughand Holmesand was situated on the former Sheffield and Rotherham Railwayline between Rotherham Westgate Stationand Wincobank and Meadowhall Station. The station, which had two flanking platforms, opened with the line.
With the building of the
North Midland Railwaythrough Rotherham Masborough, Holmes became the junction of the curve from this station to the Sheffield line. A second curve, allowing trains to travel from the Sheffield line to the North Midland facing south was opened in 1869. [Pixton, B., (2000) "North Midland: Portrait of a Famous Route," Cheltenham: Runpast Publishing]
The station was closed in 1955. Nowadays a footbridge spans the two tracks almost above Holmes Junction which, via a BR- built chord line, known as "The Holmes Chord", now links the
Great Central Railwayto the former S&R.
The access line to Booth's scrapyard leaves the Holmes Chord shortly after the junction. This line was an original part of the S&R to Rotherham Westgate. Nearby was the works of Isaac Dodds and Son who supplied the early locos for the S&R.
