About SideTracked - Moss Side Station
Moss Side railway station is on the Blackpool South to Preston line, in Lancashire, England. It is located in Moss Side, a hamlet where the B5259 (Lytham to Wrea Green) road crosses the railway at a level crossing. It is managed by Northern Rail, who operate all passenger services that call there.
When the station opened in 1846 it was at first called Kirkham Road.
In 1961 Moss Side was closed along with Wrea Green station in the neighbouring (larger) village. It was an easy task to re-open the station as (unlike at Wrea Green) the platform had never been removed after closure. Moss Side station therefore, was re-opened in 1983, with the aid of a grant from Lancashire County Council.
