Immingham Town electric railway station

Immingham Town electric railway station in Lincolnshire, England, was the main line terminus of the Grimsby and Immingham Electric Railway within Immingham. The line came from Grimsby (Corporation Bridge) over the marshes which separated the two places and was an "Inter Urban" light railway system to serve the workers and their families who lived in Immingham. A short branch line ran from the station to serve Immingham Dock where most of the town's population worked. The line was also extended further into the town to a terminal point on Queens Road near the new locomotive depot.

The station was opened, with the dock complex, in 1912 and closed from 3 July 1961.
