Ulceby railway station serves the village of Ulceby, North Lincolnshire near Immingham in North East Lincolnshire, England. It was built by the Great Grimsby and Sheffield Junction Railway in 1848 and is located at Ulceby Skitter.

It is managed by Northern Rail and served by their trains on the Barton Line between Cleethorpes and Barton-on-Humber.

The station layout is somewhat unusual in that all passenger trains use a single platform, even though the station is located on a double track line. There are junctions at either end of the station, as the branch line from Habrough to Barton-on-Humber meets and then diverges from the busy freight-only line from Brocklesby to Immingham Dock. These junctions, and the adjacent level crossing are controlled from Ulceby Junction signal box at the southern end of the station. The station originally had two platforms but this was altered to a single wooden platform when the line was resignalled in the 1980s.

Services

The station has a two-hourly service in each direction on weekdays.[1] It is operated by a Class 153 railcar.[2] The Sunday service is limited to the summer months only (May - early September) and four trips each way.
