Huncoat railway station is a railway station which serves the village of Huncoat, between Accrington and Burnley in Lancashire. The station is 8 miles (13 km) east of Blackburn railway station on the East Lancashire Line operated by Northern Rail.
Monday to Saturday, there is an hourly service from Huncoat to Burnley and Colne (eastbound) and Blackpool South via Accrington, Blackburn and Preston (westbound). On Sundays, there is a two-hourly service in each direction.
From 14 May 2012 Huncoat became a request only stop, in addition to Hapton, Burnley Barracks and Pleasington. Huncoat became a mandatory stop again in 2013 after changes to the level crossing next to the station which included closure of the signal box.
