Mossley Hill railway station is in the suburbs of Liverpool in the north west of England. The station is operated by Northern Rail.

The station was renamed from Mossley Hill for Aigburth to Mossley Hill on 6 May 1974.[1]

Like West Allerton (preceding south) there are 4 platforms, 2 of which, platforms 1 and 2, are located on the fast lines and are where most trains stop. 3 & 4 are on the slow lines and are used infrequently, mainly where faster services (Virgin West Coast, Transpennine Express and most London Midland) are booked to overtake stopping services on this stretch of line (this is most common in the Liverpool-bound direction).

The ticket office is on a road bridge. Ramps lead down to the two island platforms, which have basic shelters and seats.

North of the station, on the route towards Edge Hill are the sites – still identifiable where the line crosses roads – of the former Sefton Park and Wavertree stations.

Services[edit]

There is a roughly half-hourly service between Liverpool Lime Street and Manchester Oxford Road operated by Northern Rail.

The station is also served by local bus services: 80, 80A, 180, 201, 173 and 61.
