Salwick railway station serves several nearby villages around 5 miles west of central Preston. It was constructed in the mid-19th century during a boom in the British railway network that saw hundreds of lines and stations get built over just a few decades. In the late ‘30s, the station closed due to lack of passenger numbers during WWII but reopened several years later. Today, the two platforms, which are joined as an island, sit alongside the Preston-to-Blackpool Line and are managed along with the trains that pass by Northern. Less than 10 passengers use the station on average every day. Facilities at this unmanned station are sparse with little more than a waiting shelter and timetable posters. Passengers are required to buy their tickets in advance or on board the train with the conductor. There are four services a day calling at the station en route direct to Preston in 9 minutes and a further three westbound to Blackpool Pleasure Beach in 28 minutes.

The station is in the heart of the countryside, so other than walking trails, there is little else of interest to visitors. Just a little further south you could visit the St John the Evangelist church or dive into The Windmill Tavern, a beautiful old country pub serving up proper British grub.
