History: The first station on this site was built by the Hull and Selby Railway
between 1836 and 1840. The present station was built when the North Eastern Railway
built its cut-off from Chaloner Whin junction, York, to Shaftholme junction, Doncaster.
The Act for this was obtained on 13 May 1864, and it was opened on 2 January 1871.
Thus Selby became an important junction on through routes from London to Edinburgh,
and from Liverpool to Hull.
