Town Green railway station is a railway station in Town Green, Aughton, Lancashire, England, situated on the Ormskirk branch of Merseyrail's Northern Line. It is located at the junction of Town Green Lane and Middlewood Road with pedestrian and vehicular access from Middlewood Road. The booking hall opens onto the south bound platform and the Aughton police station now occupies rooms opening off the booking hall. To the Liverpool end of Town Green station on the Ormskirk bound side and behind the signal box there used to be a small loop line with a very low white painted station which was the platform used by Royal trains when the Royal family were visiting Knowsley Hall - the home of Lord Derby or attending the Grand National race meeting at Aintree. The signal box (erected by British Railways in 1949 to replace an earlier Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway structure dating from 1875) was closed and demolished when the line was resignalled in February 1994 - from October 1970 until to its demise, it remotely operated the points and signalling at Ormskirk as well as at this station.
Trains operate every 15 minutes (Monday to Saturday daytime) between Ormskirk and Liverpool Central, and every 30 minutes in the evening and all day Sunday.
