Flixton railway station is located in the village of Flixton, in the Trafford Metropolitan Borough of Greater Manchester in the north west of England. The station, and all services calling there, are operated by Northern Rail. The station is 6 1⁄2 miles (10.5 km) west of Manchester Oxford Road on the Manchester to Liverpool Line.
The ticket office on Flixton Road bridge, a portable building installed to replace the demolished station building, is manned Monday - Friday between 06:25-13:45. At other times tickets are purchased from a conductor on the train.
In the 1990s the station building was converted into a pub and restaurant and then into a nightclub and bar. It was destroyed by fire in 1997 and was demolished in 2001. The original footbridge remains and is still in use. A small "bus stop" style shelter on the down platform also survives from the original station building.
The station once had a small goods yard on the northern side of the main line, the bay platform for which still exists although it is no longer in use. The goods yard itself is now a car park. All the track relating to the goods yard has been removed.
Services are roughly hourly in each direction, towards Irlam and Liverpool Lime Street to the west, and towards Chassen Road and Manchester Oxford Road to the east. Extra services call at the station during peak-hours; services are less frequent in the evenings and there is no Sunday service.
