Barrow-in-Furness Railway Station - Services


To the north, services are provided Monday-Saturday by Northern Rail, with services approximately hourly during the day to Whitehaven and Carlisle. One train per day operates to Sellafield specifically for transportation of workers at Sellafield nuclear plant (BNFL). Evening trains run only as far Millom and there is no Sunday service over this section. There are 14 services northbound per weekday with ten going to Carlisle, three going to Millom and one to Sellafield. Barrow receives 13 services from the Northern part of the line, with eight trains from Carlisle, three trains from Millom, one train from Maryport and one train from Sellafield. Some of these services continue along the Furness Line to Lancaster and Preston.

To the south, stopping services are provided by Northern Rail (mainly to Lancaster; however, some go as far as Preston) and semi-fast services to Manchester Airport by First TransPennine Express. There is also a daily service from Buxton but no corresponding service in the other direction. Services frequencies on this section are somewhat uneven due to the differing stopping patterns of the two service groups, with intervals of between 30 and 90 minutes between trains during the daytime and every two hours during the evenings and on Sundays (afternoons/evenings only in winter).

    Those services which the community will most readily pay for, it is most disagreeable to render.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    True love ennobles and dignifies the material labors of life; and homely services rendered for love’s sake have in them a poetry that is immortal.
