Lostock Gralam railway station serves the village of Lostock Gralam in Cheshire, England. The station is on the Mid-Cheshire Line from Chester to Manchester Piccadilly, located 18½ miles (30 km) east of Chester.
For many years the station had a run-down appearance and had been downgraded to a request stop. The main station building was demolished on Sunday 8 July 2007. As a result of the "Lostock Triangle development", the station is no longer a request stop,. In the summer of 2011, new passenger shelters were constructed on both platforms. Prior to this there had been no protection from the weather for passengers on the Manchester bound platform.
Monday to Saturday there is an hourly service westbound to Chester and eastbound to Manchester Piccadilly (with a couple of peak hour extras to/from Stockport).
