Roby railway station serves the village of Roby, Merseyside, England.

Future[edit]

Originally Roby station had four platforms, but the two platforms on the northern side of the station (Platforms 3 and 4) were closed in the 1970s, and the track was lifted. As part of the electrification of the Liverpool-Manchester Line, Platform 3 will be brought back into use in time for the December 2014 timetable change, and Platform 4 will be re-instated later.[1]

Services[edit]

During the daytime, Monday to Saturday, the station is served by 4 trains per hour in each direction. All Westbound trains run to Liverpool Lime Street.

Eastbound trains serve Huyton, then continue to Wigan North Western (2 trains per hour), Warrington Bank Quay (1 train per hour) or Manchester Victoria (1 train per hour). Services are less frequent in the evenings.

For many years, Roby was closed on Sundays. However, from 10 December 2006, the station gained a Sunday service, with 2 trains per hour to Liverpool, 1 train per hour to Manchester and 1 train per hour to Blackpool North via Wigan.
