Sinfin Central station was in
Sinfinarea of the city of Derby, Derbyshire, England.
The station was originally on the line between Derby and
Ashby de la Zouchbut this route closed in 1930. Then in 1976 a service was introduced to serve the nearby Rolls-Royce factory. Despite Derby City Council's efforts to encourage usage of public transport, the service was very under-used.
The route service eventually got reduced to one train per day in 1992. This ran until 1993, when the
Derwent Valley Line, which connected with the Sinfin branch, changed to using Sprinter trains. Sprinters were not permitted on the branch because of poor signalling. The train service was then replaced with a taxi service until 1998, when both Sinfin Central and Sinfin North were effectively closed.
The line survives to serve the Rolls Royce plant in
