CRL - Community Rail Lancashire

Station
Lostock Hall

Lostock Hall station is situated 2¾ miles south of Preston. The original station was close to a large railway junction which linked services from Blackburn and Preston with destinations all over the county. The original station was closed and demolished in 1968 but was rebuilt and reopened in 1984.

Lostock Hall became a mecca for rail enthusiasts in the late 60s when the engine shed sited adjacent to the old station became one of the last  working steam sheds in the country.

The station is close to the village centre which has a small shopping area.
