Notes: Sandon Dock was a typical LOR station being located on the elevated line 16 feet above street level on the iron structure that carried the line above Liverpool's busy Dock Road and directly above the Dock Boards railway which ran throughout the length of the dock system linking the various goods facilities. Upon opening it was served by trains between Herculaneum Dock and Alexandra Dock stations. In 1894 the line was extended to Seaforth Sands but in 1896 Sandon Dock Station was closed being replaced by Huskisson Dock to its north and Nelson Dock to its south.

Nothing remains of this station that closed before the start of the 20th Century.
