Gotherington railway station is a railway station serving the village of Gotherington in Gloucestershire, England. The station is located just to the north of the village.
It is located on the former Cheltenham to Stratford-upon-Avon line, which was opened by the Great Western Railway in 1906. The station opened as ''Gotherington'' on 1 June 1906; it was renamed ''Gotherington Halt'' on 1 December 1940, and was closed on 13 June 1955. It was the first station to close on this route (most of the other stations closed in 1960). The line itself remained open until 1976. The track was later lifted by 1979.
The line was relaid by the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway, during the mid-1990s reaching Gotherington in 1997. Trains recommenced the same year, and were extended to Cheltenham Racecourse in April 2003. The station buildings are currently privately owned, so trains must use the opposite platform.
== Signalling ==
Just south of Gotherington station is a passing loop controlled by a new signal box.〔http://www.gwsr.com/news/2011/december/gotherington-signalbox-opens.aspx〕 When the box is switched in, it breaks the very long section between Winchcombe and Cheltenham Racecourse, then short section token working is in use from Cheltenham Racecourse Station to Gotherington, and Gotherington to Winchcombe. There is also a provision for Down trains to terminate at the Gotherington, use the loop to run round the train and return to Winchcombe.〔http://www.gwsr.com/news/2011/november/gotherington-signalling.aspx〕
