Notes: Notes: The station was situated on what became the West
Coast Main Line. The line had more humble beginnings opening
on 3.9.1832 as a branch leading from the 1830 Liverpool and
Manchester Railway at Parkside and running up to Wigan.
Between 1888 and 1894 the line through Bamfurlong by then part
of the LNWR's main line to Scotland was Quadrupled but Bamfurlong
remained a two platform station situated on the original lines.
The new lines passed to the east of the station. This configuration
of the tracks can still be noted today.
