Croston Railway Station

Facts and Figures

Croston railway station serves the small village of Croston, near Chorley in Lancashire, England; the station is on the Ormskirk Branch Line. This line was cut back with the railway restructuring of the 1960s and 1970s, and only a single DMU (usually a Class 142) operates over the line, shuttling from end to end to provide a train approximately every ninety minutes each way on weekdays (there being no Sunday service). "Line" is the suitable word here, as along the route are clear signs the former dual track route from Preston to Liverpool Exchange was severely cut back in 1970. Trains connect at Ormskirk with Merseyrail services to Liverpool Central. Croston enjoys bus connections to nearby Leyland, Chorley, Southport, and Preston. It is on the B5247 into Bretherton.
