Naburn railway station

Naburn railway station was a railway station which served the village of Naburn, south of York, on the East Coast Main Line. It closed to passengers in 1953 and to goods services in 1964;[1] the station building is now a hostel.[2] In 1983 the Selby Diversion was opened which led to the closure of the railway line through Naburn; the trackbed is now used as a cycle path between York and Selby[3] and is part of the National Cycle Network and the Trans Pennine Trail.
