The original railway station in Saltaire was opened in 1856 by the Midland Railway but closed in 1965 following the Beeching Cuts, a series of closures as part of an overall strategy for reshaping the railways. The original stone buildings that stood on each platform were demolished in 1970 and were replaced by the current wooden and stone structures when the station reopened in 1984.

The nearby railway, along with the canal, was likely an important factor in Titus Salt’s decision to build his model village on this site. Today, the station lies on the Northern Line and has services to Leeds, Bradford and Skipton.
