Saxilby railway station serves Saxilby in Lincolnshire, England. The station is 6 miles (10 km) west of Lincoln Central on the Sheffield-Lincoln line and the Doncaster-Lincoln Line.

The station consists of two platforms, connected by a foot crossing over the line. The station house has now been converted for private use, with one section becoming a private dwelling and the other an office. The station is now un-manned and all tickets must be purchased from the conductor on the train.

Minimal facilities are provided for passengers, with only a single waiting shelter on platform two. Live train information is available and is situated on platform 1.

During winter 2013, a footbridge connecting platforms was built to redirect commuters from the foot crossing. This is expected to open during summer 2014.

Services

Mondays to Saturdays there is generally an hourly service eastbound to Lincoln Central and westbound to Sheffield, from where the trains continue to Doncaster, Adwick and Scunthorpe with occasional services direct to Doncaster via Gainsborough Lea Road. On Sundays there are four trains a day towards Lincoln and Sheffield.
