Leominster has 2 platforms for north (Ludlow) and south (Hereford) bound trains respectively.
Developed jointly by the Great Western Railway and the LNWR, it was originally a through station on their joint Shrewsbury and Hereford Railway. The GWR then took over two independently financed and developed branch lines, creating a busy junction station:
- Leominster and Kington Railway to Kington and Presteigne (Platforms 3/4)
- Worcester, Bromyard and Leominster Railway to Worcester (Platforms 4/5)
Leominster now sees a regular service to important cities. The Monday-Saturday off-peak service is:
- 1 train per hour (tph) to Manchester Piccadilly, calling at Ludlow, Craven Arms, Church Stretton, Shrewsbury, Crewe, Wilmslow and Stockport.
- 1 tph to Carmarthen, calling at Hereford, Abergavenny, Cwmbran, Newport, Cardiff Central, Bridgend, Port Talbot Parkway, Neath, Swansea, Llanelli and Pembrey and Burry Port.
- This journey is extended to Milford Haven every two hours, calling at Whitland, Clunderwen (request stop), Clarbeston Road (request stop), Haverfordwest and Johnston (request stop).
- There is also one daily service to Pembroke Dock, which calls at all stations to Carmarthen, then Whitland and all stations along the Pembroke Dock line. This service departs at 17:33, and arrives at Pembroke Dock at 22:18.
