About Mirfield Station
Mirfield railway station lies on the Huddersfield Line managed by Northern Rail which is also now served by Grand Central Railway.
The platforms have an unusual configuration. Platforms 1 and 2 form an island platform on the western side of the bridge over Station Road. Trains from Platform 1 go to Leeds and Wakefield Westgate (eastbound); Platform 2 is rarely used for normal scheduled services but is passed by non-stopping westbound trains to Huddersfield. Platform 3 is a side platform on the eastern side of the bridge; trains are towards Huddersfield, Halifax, Bradford Interchange and Brighouse (westbound).
