Mossley railway station serves the town of Mossley, Greater Manchester, England. It lies on the Huddersfield Line 9.9 miles (16 km) north-east of Manchester Victoria and is managed by Northern Rail.

Facilities[edit]

The station is a small, two-platform station, with the only on-site services being a ticket office that is staffed during peak times. Disabled access to the station is limited, with wheelchair provision only being made for the Huddersfield to Manchester platform.[1][2] As the Manchester to Huddersfield platform is accessible through a single staircase, disabled passengers often find it easier to travel on to Huddersfield and then disembark at Mossley on the opposite platform when the train makes its return journey.

Services[edit]

Mossley is served by an hourly Northern Rail service from Manchester Victoria station to Huddersfield station throughout the week (including Sundays), with some additional services during weekday peak hours.

The more frequent TransPennine Express service, from Manchester Piccadilly station and points west to Huddersfield station and points east, passes through Mossley without stopping.
