The station is 23 miles (37 km) north west of London Euston on the West Coast Main Line. Apsley is managed and train services are operated by London Northwestern Railway.

History[edit]

The station was designed by the architect William Henry Hamlyn[1] and opened on 26 September 1938, to serve the paper producing area of Apsley Mill and Nash Mill, it was operated initially by the London, Midland and Scottish Railway. The station then passed on to the London Midland Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948.

When Sectorisation was introduced in the 1980s, the station was served by Network SouthEast until the Privatisation of British Railways.
