Penistone train station is in the South Yorkshire market town of Penistone. It serves the town with trains provided by Northern, which travel between Sheffield and Huddersfield on the Penistone Line. The fastest journey time to Sheffield is 40 minutes, and trains to Huddersfield take around 30 minutes.

The station which stands today opened in 1874 as a replacement for an earlier station which was built in 1845. The old Woodhead line which also served the town was closed in 1981 and the path of the former track now forms part of the TransPennine Trail.

Penistone train station today consists of two platforms which are linked by a barrow crossing over the line. There is ramp access to both sides, and to the nearby car park from platform 2. The station is unstaffed and has no ticket machines so journeys from here need to be purchased in advance or paid for on the train. There are enclosed waiting rooms on both platforms.
