Bare Lane train station serves the village of Bare in Lancashire. Located on the Morecambe Branch Line from Lancaster to Heysham Port, the station was first opened in 1864 with a full station building and a signal box. Today, the station building is a private dwelling, while the signal box was closed in 2012 following signalling equipment renewal efforts by Network Rail. The modern station has minimal amenities, so tickets should be purchased before commencing travel. Step-free access via ramp is available to both platforms.
Bare Lane station is served by hourly trains for Northern local services, operating largely as a Lancaster-Morecambe shuttle. At peak times, additional services run. At present, four longer-distance services run per day from Morecambe to Skipton and Leeds. Additionally, for some years the final train each day was a First TransPennine Express service from Windermere on diversion from Barrow-in-Furness. This service alone used the original 1864 curve along the track, functioning as a parliamentary train for this stretch of track.
