Runcorn railway station is in the town of Runcorn in the unitary authority of Halton in the north west of England. The station lies on the Liverpool branch of the West Coast Main Line and is operated by Virgin Trains. The station has a shop/snack bar in the ticket hall. Lifts are available to allow passengers to cross between the platforms. A car park (charges apply) and taxi rank are also available, and bus stops for services to other parts of Runcorn and also to Widnes.


There is an hourly service between Liverpool Lime Street and London Euston operated by Virgin Trains, and services to Crewe and Birmingham New Street are operated by London Midland. Services are less frequent in the evenings and on Sundays.

Runcorn is the northern terminus for the so-called Parliamentary train service non-stop from Chester. This train, operated by Northern Rail, runs once a week on summer Saturdays only, to satisfy the minimum requirement to operate a passenger service over the otherwise-disused Halton Curve. There is no return journey to Chester, as the train then runs empty to Liverpool Lime Street ready for normal service.
