Millom Railway Station serves the town of Millom in Cumbria, England. The railway station is a stop on the scenic Cumbrian Coast Line 16 miles (26 km) north of Barrow-in-Furness. It is managed by Northern, who provide all passenger train services.

It was opened by the Whitehaven & Furness Junction Railway in 1850.

Until 1963, there was a short goods-only branch from here to the ironworks at Hodbarrow. This was abandoned after the works closed but the disused trackbed can still be seen from passing trains, whilst the old works site is now a nature reserve.[1]

The station buildings also house Millom Heritage Museum And Visitor Centre (which runs the rail ticket office) and a small workshop offering furniture restoration.[2]

Facilities[edit]

The booking office operates on a part-time basis (07:00 - 15:00, Mondays through Saturdays); outside these times tickets must be purchased on the train, as no ticket machine is available here. Information screens and posters provide train running details for passengers. Both platforms have separate step-free access and are linked via a footbridge.[3]

Services[edit]

Monday to Saturdays, there is generally an hourly service southbound to Barrow-in-Furness (15 trains per day) and northbound to Carlisle (11 per day plus one extra to Sellafield) - however there is no service northbound after 19.00, with the last few trains from Barrow terminating here. Some services extend from Barrow along the Furness Line to Lancaster and Preston.[4]

There is no Sunday service.
