Althorpe railway station serves the village of Althorpe in North Lincolnshire, England. The station is also very close to the villages of Keadby and Gunness.

Stopping services from Sheffield to Scunthorpe call at the station. Some stopping services terminate at Doncaster, but during the day others continue through to Sheffield and Lincoln Central.

Most services are provided by Northern Rail who operate the station. Occasional services by TransPennine Express also call at this station.

The station has very limited facilities. There is a shelter on each platform, with a telephone and a help point for contact with Customer Services and British Transport Police on Platform 1 (eastbound). Platform 2 (westbound) is accessible only by a footbridge with 50 steps.

The station is on the west bank of the River Trent, to the west of the combined road-and-rail King George V Bridge, which was a lifting bridge until the late 1950s.

History

The first Althorpe station, opened by the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway, was on the original line over the Trent and replaced the terminus, Keadby, on the South Yorkshire Railway, which became Keadby Goods. This station was originally known as Keadby and Althorpe.

When the line was again moved to a new alignment to cross the river by the present a new station was opened which is still in use.

The station which now bears the name, became part of the London and North Eastern Railway during the Grouping of 1923. The station then passed to the Eastern Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948.

When Sectorisation was introduced in the 1980s, the station was served
