Morecambe railway station is a railway station that serves the town of Morecambe in Lancashire, England. It is located on the Morecambe Branch Line from Lancaster to Heysham. The current two-platform station was opened in 1994 to replace the Midland Railway's earlier Morecambe Promenade terminus situated some 400m further west, closer to the town's sea front. The old station building remains in use as a pub & restaurant, but its platforms have been demolished and the site is now occupied by a cinema and the Morecambe indoor market. Recently a modern ticket office was opened, and passenger numbers have increased by 8% over the last 5 years. Services are operated by variety of Diesel Multiple Units, including Class 142, Class 153 and Class 156 sets. Services mainly run into platforms 1 and 2 at Lancaster (although some also use platform 5). Trains can only go to Heysham using platform 2, as the separate lines to platforms 1 and 2 are only connected at Bare Lane. The diagram below shows the current trackwork at Morecambe Station.
