Pleasington railway station serves the village of Pleasington in Lancashire, England. The station is on the East Lancashire Line 3 miles (5 km) west of Blackburn railway station. It is managed by Northern, who also provide all the passenger services calling there.
It is unstaffed, and has no permanent buildings, other than standard waiting shelters. A long line PA system and digital information screens are provided, but there are no ticket vending facilities available, so passengers intending to travel must buy tickets on the train. Step free access for disabled travellers is provided by means of ramps to each platform.
As of January 2018, along with other Stations on this line, a new touch screen Ticket Machine was added to the Station.
A £2,000 refurbishment scheme at the station, funded by East Lancs Community Rail Partnership and the local authority, was carried out in 2015, by a consortium of college students, community workers and volunteers.
Monday to Saturdays, there is an hourly service from Pleasington towards Preston westbound and Blackburn, Burnley Central and Colne, eastbound. There is also an hourly service in each direction on Sundays since the December 2017 timetable change.
