The original Great Northern Railway ran as far as Doncaster, using running powers from there to York.

Two connecting spurs were also authorised, one at Heck with the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway, and another at Joan Croft Junction and Applehurst Junction with the West Riding and Grimsby Railway. Opened in 1871.
