Essendine railway station was a station in Essendine, Rutland. It was situated on the East Coast Main Line of the Great Northern Railway.

Because it was the junction for branch lines to Stamford and Bourne, it was served by some express trains as well as by stopping trains.

The Bourne branch closed in 1957. The Stamford branch closed in 1959 along with Essendine station itself and the Peterborough to Grantham local services. Essendine station has been proposed for reopening. Peterborough to Grantham is the longest distance between adjacent stations in England. [British Railways Atlas.1947. p.17]
