Scunthorpe railway station serves the town of
Scunthorpein North Lincolnshire, England. The station is located a short walk from the town centre on Station Road.
As you approach the station by road, there is a pay and display car park with around 50 spaces, including 2 disabled spaces. From the car park, it is a short walk to the Ticket Office, which is open between 0545-1930, Monday-Saturday, and 0845-1930 Sunday. Close to the entrance, there is a public telephone box.
The station has two platforms, Platform 1 serves mainly eastbound trains toward Grimsby/Cleethorpes, although some
Northern Rail"stopper" services toward Doncaster do use this platform through the day. All westbound First TransPennine Expressservices, and most Northern Railservices use Platform 2. This platform is accessible via a bridge over the tracks.
The station has limited seating on both platforms, and three waiting rooms. There are toilets available on Platform 1, which are only accessible by requesting the key from the Ticket Office. Due to these restrictions, the toilets are kept in a very clean condition, and were awarded the title of "Loo of the Year" in 2005, under the Railway Stations category.
This is not the original Scunthorpe station. The original location was near to where the present Brigg Road bridge is located. The present station was opened in 1926.
