Once a beautifully-timbered deer park, Trafford Park station is in the largest industrial estate in Europe and was, in fact, the first of its kind, which saw its heyday during WW1 and WW2, when 75,000 workers toiled to produce equipment and ammunition for the war effort. Just north of central Stretford in the Trafford Metropolitan and surrounded by the Manchester Ship Canal, Trafford Park station was opened in 1904 to move around the thousands of Mancunians - many of them women - who worked in the area's factories. In the 21st century, the park houses over 1,400 companies employing in excess of 35,000 people. The two-platform station runs a sparse service with trains heading every two hours in each direction to Humphrey Park and Liverpool Lime Street to the west and Deansgate and Manchester Oxford Road to the east, but by 2020, a new Metrolink tramline will also run through the area.

Trafford Park station's Haltons Court entrance leads down to a subway connecting to platform 2, with the staircase leading to platform 1. The station is unstaffed, and the main office on Moss Road is now used as a taxi company, making onward travel that little bit easier given that there are no bus stops near the station. While everything in the park is within walking distance, including a small parade of shops along Moss Road, the station has no amenities.
