Mossley railway station serves the town of Mossley, Greater Manchester, England. It lies on the Huddersfield Line 9.9 miles (16 km) north-east of Manchester Victoria and is managed by Northern.

Facilities[edit]

The station is a small, two-platform station, with the only on-site services being a ticket office that is staffed during weekday and Saturday mornings/early afternoons (Monday - Friday 06:45 - 14:20, Saturday 07:45 - 15:00). Outside of these times, tickets must be purchased on the train or prior to travel. There is a waiting room on the southbound platform and a waiting shelter on the northbound side. Train running details are provided by telephone and timetable posters.[2]

Disabled access to the station is limited, with wheelchair provision only being made for the Huddersfield to Manchester platform.[3][4] As the Manchester to Huddersfield platform is accessible through a single staircase, disabled passengers often find it easier to travel on to Huddersfield and then disembark at Mossley on the opposite platform when the train makes its return journey.

Services[edit]

Mossley is served by an hourly Northern service from Manchester Victoria to Huddersfield throughout the week, including Sundays, with some additional services during weekday peak hours.[5] A few services are extended to/from Leeds eastbound and to Wigan Wallgate or Southport westbound.

The more frequent TransPennine Express service, from Manchester Piccadilly, passes through Mossley without stopping. From the May 2018 timetable change however, TPE will become the main operator serving the station. They will be providing an hourly express service (including Sundays) to Huddersfield, Leeds & Hull eastbound and to Stalybridge & Manchester Piccadilly westbound. Northern will henceforth only provide a limited weekday peak hour service to Manchester Victoria and Huddersfield.[6]
