Crossens railway station Wikipedia
Located on the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway main line between Southport and Preston, it was opened to passengers by the West Lancashire Railwayin 1878. In April 1904 it became the last electrified station on the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway's suburban lines from Liverpool Exchange railway station, forming a terminus of the Southport - Crossens electric branch. Services ended on 6 September 1964 with the closure of the Southport to Preston line.
The station consisted of two platforms. A turnback track siding was provided for the electric Class 502 trains if a through train to either Southport or Preston was scheduled.
Just beyond the end of the electrified section was a level crossing with a controlling signal box on the line from Southport to Preston.
