Ferriby railway station was opened in 1840 as part of the expansion of the railway from Selby to Hull and was one of the intermediate stations on the new line.

An unique aspect of Ferriby railway station is the additional of a westbound loop to Brough railway station to allow the service to the now disused Melton Halt railway station. This occurred after the line was changed from quadrupled line to double line in the 1970’s by British Rail.
