Marfleet railway station was opened in 1854 as part of the expansion of the railway from Hull to Withernsea and was one of the intermediate stations on the new line. The station was closed on 19th of October 1964 to passengers and on 1st of May 1972 for freight as part of The Reshaping of British Railways (Beeching Report).

The Hull and Holderness Railway in 2020 is mainly a shared-use footway, from Rosmead Playing Field, Hull (Home of East Hull A.R.L.F.C.) to the village of Keyingham, East Riding of Yorkshire.

I cannot see Marfleet railway station reopening in its previous location because of shared-use footway. However, I can see a new station being build on the line leading to Port of Hull (Alexandra Dock), this line is being the remains of Hull and Barnsley Railway, which is only half a mile away from the original station.
