Lostock railway station serves the Lostock suburb of
Bolton, in Greater Manchester, England. According to large scale Ordnance Survey maps and local usage, the area is named Lostock Junction and the station is referred to as such by many local people.
The two-platform station is served by
Northern Railand TransPennine Expressservices to Manchesterstations (ie. Piccadilly, Airport, Oxford Road) from Preston and Blackpool North. It is a popular commuter station. [ Strategic Rail Authority figures 2004-05.] .
The Bolton-Wigan branch-line diverges just to the south of Lostock's platforms, but there are no longer any platforms on the branch to Wigan and Southport. The
Network RailNorth West Route Utilisation Strategy has recommended the construction of these additional platforms and they are planned to be reinstated as part of the Manchester TIF bid.
