East Garforth railway station serves Garforth in West Yorkshire, England. It lies on the Selby Line, operated by Northern 8 miles (13 km) east of Leeds. The station was opened by West Yorkshire Metro on 1 May 1987, to serve the new housing developments in the area.

The station is an unstaffed halt, and has wooden platforms with shelters on each one. It is located around 0.5 miles (800 m) from the main Garforth station.

The station is fully accessible for wheelchair users, with ramps from the road to both platforms. Ticket machines are available for passengers to buy or collect pre-paid tickets prior to travel. Train running information is provided by a long line P.A system and digital display screens on each platform.[1]


Monday to Saturday daytime there is a half-hourly service to Leeds, with alternate services continuing to Bradford Interchange and Halifax. Eastbound, there are hourly services to York and Hull (the latter extended from Selby at the winter 2019 timetable change; this is the service that runs to Halifax westbound). The same frequency remains in place during the evening; on Sundays there are also two trains per hour each way - to Leeds westbound and alternately to York and Selby eastbound.[2]

Services operated by CrossCountry and TransPennine Express pass the station without stopping, as does the daily London North Eastern Railway service to/from Aberdeen.
