Winsford station was upgraded in winter 2010. The upgrade included the installation of help points and electronic arrival/departure boards on the platforms as well as a departure monitor in the main building. The ticket office is staffed from 07:00 to 12:00 on Mondays through Thursdays and 07:00 to 15:00 on Fridays and Saturdays (closed Sundays); outside these hours there is a ticket machine available, which can also be used to collect tickets purchased in advance. Though the footbridge linking the platforms has stairs, step-free access is available to both via local roads.
The station is managed by West Midlands Trains, branded as London Northwestern Railway, who provides services between Birmingham New Street and Liverpool Lime Street. Trains call hourly in each direction throughout the week (except Sunday mornings), with a few extra calls at weekday peak times.
