ervices

The station is served by the hourly Arriva Trains Wales service to Manchester Piccadilly via Warrington Bank Quay. In the other direction services run to Chester, with most trains continuing along the North Wales Coast Line.

Frodsham is also served by the infrequent (two trains per day) Northern Rail-operated service between Liverpool Lime Street and Ellesmere Port.

Trivia

North of Frodsham station, a connecting line to Runcorn (the Halton Curve) diverges. This line is currently served by just one passenger train a week, which operates on summer Saturdays only, to fulfil legal and contractual obligations and keep the line "open" in accordance with Government legislation. The train starts from Chester and runs non-stop to Runcorn, passing through Frodsham without calling.
