Treeton Junction was opened on 1st April 1900 to control the junction with the Sheffield District Railway. This railway connected the Midland Railway at Treeton, with the Midland Railway at Brightside, serving Catcliffe and West Tinsley Stations. It was redeveloped in 1965 to become the site of Tinsley Marshalling Yard and Treeton Junction was re framed in 1965 to control the new north to west curve towards Tinsley Yard. It closed on 3rd October 1982 when the area was taken over by the Treeton Jcn interlocking of Sheffield PSB.
