Green Road railway station serves The Green, in Cumbria, England, a village some 3 miles (5 km) north of Millom and the rural parish of Millom Without. The railway station is a request stop on the scenic Cumbrian Coast Line north of Barrow-in-Furness.

The station is owned and managed by Northern, which provides all passenger train services.

Green Road has been adopted since 1981 and is a member of Northern Rail's Station Adoption scheme. The station has won a number of awards for its gardens.[1]

Facilities[edit]

The station is not staffed and has no ticketing facilities, so passengers must purchase these on the train or prior to their journey. The brick main building is not in public use, but there are waiting shelters on each side. Step-free access to both platforms is via ramps from the road that crosses the railway here (the automated level crossing is immediately to the south of the station).[2] Train running information is provided by posters and telephone.

Service[edit]

Monday to Saturdays there is a roughly hourly service each way, southbound to Barrow-in-Furness and northbound to Millom. Most daytime northbound trains continue to Whitehaven and Carlisle.[3]

A Sunday service was introduced at the May 2018 timetable change - this runs hourly from mid-morning until the evening (though certain trains only run as far as Millom). This is the first such service on the Coast line for more than forty years.
