Preston Railway Station
Preston railway station is a major station on the West Coast Main Line, about half-way between London and Glasgow. It is served by Northern Rail, Virgin Trains, and TransPennine Express services, plus First ScotRail overnight sleeper services between London and Scotland.

The current station was built in 1880 and extended in 1903 and 1913, when it had fifteen platforms; only eight platforms remain in regular use today.
