Yeovil Pen Mill railway station is one of two stations serving the town of Yeovil in the English county of Somerset. The station is situated just under a mile to the east of the town centre.

The station is located 96 km (59½ miles) south of Bristol Temple Meads on the Bristol to Weymouth line. The station is served and managed by the First Great Western train operating company.

The town is also served by Yeovil Junction railway station, on the London Waterloo to Exeter line served by South West Trains. Whilst there is a rail connection between the two lines, there are no regular passenger trains between the two stations. They are just under two miles apart by road.

ervices

There is generally a two-hourly service, every day, towards Bristol Temple Meads northbound and Weymouth southbound.

Services are operated by Class 158s, Class 150s or less frequently Class 153 diesel multiple units. During the summer, some weekend trains are operated by Class 31s or Class 67s with Mk. 2 coaching stock. In 2007 EWS operated the service for First Great Western using Class 67s, but a licence/ contract issue ended the service early, meaning road transport had to be used for the last few weeks on summer.
