Yarmouth station was built on the outskirst of the town by the Freshwater, Yarmouth and Newport Railway in 1889. There was originally a passing loop with a second platform though the loop was out of use by the 1920s and was later removed. The two platforms had to be staggered due to a stream that passed under the line near the end of the up platform. A siding served a small goods yard behind the up platform. Yarmouth had the distinction of being one of the more economically viable stations on this loss-making line. The station was closed along with the rest of the line in September 1953.
