Lisy Nos (Russian: Ли́сий нос), was a railway station in Lisy Nos, Saint Petersburg, Russia. The station was on a wooden landing stage on the bank of the Gulf of Finland.

The station opened on October 31, 1894, when it was constructed on a branch line from Razdelnaya station.[1]

A steam locomotive with two or three carriages brought passengers along the branch line from Razdelnaya station. A passenger ferry from Lisy Nos to Kronstadt connected with the trains.[2]

Closure[edit]

The old Lisy Nos station closed in 1928 and Razdelnaya station was renamed as Lisy Nos.

Church[edit]

Near to the station there was a wooden building forming the ancient orthodox church of St Alexander Nevsky.
