Eastham Rake railway station is a railway station serving the village of Eastham on the Wirral Peninsula, England. It is situated on the Wirral Line of the Merseyrail network 8 1⁄2 miles (13.7 km) south west of Liverpool Lime Street. The station is relatively new, having opened to passengers in 1995.
The station is staffed, during all opening hours, and has platform CCTV. There is a payphone, a vending machine and a booking office. There are departure and arrival screens, on the platform, for passenger information. Each of the two platforms has sheltered seating. There is a free car park with 101 spaces, a cycle rack with 6 spaces, and a secure cycle locker with 44 spaces. Access to the station booking office is on the pavement. Access to each of the two platforms is by a stepped ramp. This allows relatively easy access for passengers with wheelchairs or prams.
