Wath Central railway station was on the South Yorkshire Railway's Doncaster - Barnsley Exchange line in England. It was the closest of Wath-upon-Dearne's three railway stations to the town centre, lying immediately to its north-east, over the Dearne and Dove Canal bridge. It was closed when local passenger services on the line were axed from 29 June 1959, however the line was used for freight traffic until 1988 and the buildings were not demolished until the area was cleared during road improvement works in 2004. The buildings were of the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway's large "Double Pavilion" style, an indication that rebuilding had taken place in the last quarter of the 19th century, the main building, with four bays, being on the Doncaster-bound platform.
South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive has a long term aim to re-open this line, which would likely involve the re-opening of a station in Wath. However it does not have any funding for this, and the radical clearance of the old alignment of the railway for re-development since the mid-1990s would make this costly and the actual alignment of any new railway difficult to speculate on.
