Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, England. It is one of the termini of the Wirral Lineof the Merseyrailnetwork, and is also served by Northern Railtrains to Helsby and Warrington Bank Quay.
The ticket office is staffed by
MerseyrailMonday to Friday between 06:05 and 14:00. There has been a recent experiment on Saturdays to see whether the station can justify being opened at the weekend. At other times, passengers purchase tickets from conductors on board the train. On Wirral Line services, only tickets for travel on the Merseyrail network may be purchased, due to the lack of electronic ticket machines, but on Northern Rail services towards Helsby and Warrington, the full range of tickets is available.
