Long Preston Railway Station

Facts and Figures

Long Preston railway station serves the village of Long Preston in North Yorkshire, England. The station is 37.5 miles (60 km) north-west of Leeds on the Leeds to Morecambe Line and is managed by Northern Rail who provide all passenger train services. It is the last station before the Settle-Carlisle Line and the Leeds to Morecambe Line diverge at Settle Junction to the north of the village. Facilities at the station are basic - the original wooden station buildings were demolished in the early 1970s and there are now just simple waiting shelters on each platform. It is unstaffed and passengers must buy their tickets on the train. The station was opened on 30 July 1849 by the "little" North Western Railway, later taken over by the Midland Railway. ^ Bairstow, p. 96
