History

The station opened on 29 May 1839 on the York and North Midland Railway near where it crossed the River Wharfe.[1] It avoided the Beeching Axe in the mid 1960s due to the poor road network in the area (there being no easily accessible road bridge over the river for York-bound commuters).[2] Today the station is unstaffed with all trains are operated by Northern.

Accidents and incidents

  • On 24 November 1906, a passenger train overran signals and ran into the rear of a freight train.[3]
  • On 8 December 1981, a York to Liverpool express derailed 1,600 feet (500 m) north of the station. Whilst the locomotive stayed upright, all the carriages de-railed and carriages six and seven rolled down a steep bank. This resulted in 24 people requiring hospitalisation with nine of those being serious. One man later died of his injuries. The cause of the derailment was found to be a crack in one of the rails of the Up Normanton line.[4]

Services

13 trains a day (Monday to Friday) call at Ulleskelf. Seven to York northbound and 2 to Sheffield, 3 to Hull and 1 to Leeds and Huddersfield southbound.

A similar service runs on Sundays, four trains to York northbound, two to Sheffield and two to Hull southbound.

In December 1997, a wheelchair accessible footbridge opened.
