Leyland station in Lancashire is exactly halfway between Glasgow and London by rail - 198 miles in either direction, and is in the heart of the South Ribble town, just south of Preston. Famed for sharing its name with British Leyland, the massive truck-and-bus-building company that grew up in the town, Leyland is a busy town in its own right. With independent shops and fresh market produce from Leyland Market, there's loads on offer for those who prefer the smaller-town feel. Half a mile from the town, Leyland station, with new ticket office and ticket machines, is situated on the West Coast Main Line, one stop south of Preston (seven minutes away), and is an important commuter hub. No long-distance main-line services stop at the station, but there are regular connections with Preston, Liverpool Lime Street, Blackpool North, Hazel Grove, Manchester Victoria and Manchester Piccadilly.
