Sandbach train station lies on the edge of the town of Sandbach, some 5 miles northeast of Crewe in Cheshire. It was opened in the 19th-century along the Crewe to Manchester line owned by the then London Midland and Scottish Railway. It was an important junction for freighter services passing through, though goods traffic was all but abandoned in the mid-‘60s. It’s still a busy commuter station with more than a quarter of a million passengers using it between 2016/17. There's an onsite ticket office open in the mornings and early afternoons between Monday and Saturday. There are no other facilities for buying tickets, so outside these hours passengers are required to buy them online in advance or on board the train with the conductor. Today, the station with its three platforms is managed along with the trains that pass through by Northern. There's at least one hourly direct train to Manchester Piccadilly and two departures per hour southbound to Crewe.

When you step off the train in Sandback, you could take the kids to Elworth Park, catch one of the summer matches at the Elworth Cricket Club or admire St. Peter's Church. There are also several excellent country pubs within walking distance of the platform.
