Elsecar railway station is a railway station in Elsecar, near Barnsley, South Yorkshire, England. It is based on the Penistone Line and Hallam Line served by Northern Rail.

CCTV was recently installed for the purposes of crime prevention. Other recent improvements to the station include new signage, lighting, and, for the first time, installation of passenger information display screens to provide real-time service information.

There are currently plans to introduce car parking for rail users at Elsecar in the near future although this has been delayed due to problems with trains being affected by the work.[1]
