Pontefract Tanshelf railway station is the most central station in the town of Pontefract and serves Pontefract Races, the racecourse located just down the street from the station. In the days of coal mining in the Pontefract area, the station served the needs of the local workforce with regular and frequent services timed for the beginning and the end of mining shifts. The station was opened by Metro on 12 May 1992.
