Along with some other stations on the same line, it is the joint oldest used railway station site in the world being a part of the original 1830 Liverpool and Manchester passenger railway. However, the current station buildings date from the 1970s.
The station is located very close to junction 4 of the M62 motorway but is not a "parkway" or "interchange" station. It has recently introduced a 'Park and Ride' scheme, with a large car park situated on the south side of the station. A number of local buses stop outside, and it is about five minutes walk to Broadgreen Hospital.
It is operated by Northern Rail, and is served by trains from Liverpool Lime Street to Wigan North Western, Manchester Victoria and Warrington Bank Quay. Trains to and from Liverpool Lime Street are every 15 minutes through most of the day.

On Sundays, services run from Liverpool Lime Street to Blackpool North via Wigan North Western and Preston. Services also run from Liverpool Lime Street to Manchester Airport via Manchester Piccadilly.
