Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.

The random article for Thursday, 4 January 2018 is Moss Side railway station.

Moss Side railway station is on the Blackpool South to Preston line, in Lancashire, England. It is located in Moss Side, a hamlet where the B5259 (Lytham to Wrea Green) road crosses the railway at a level crossing. It is managed by Northern, who operate all passenger services that call there.

When the station opened in 1846, it was at first called Kirkham Road.

In 1961 Moss Side was closed along with Wrea Green station in the neighbouring (larger) village. It was an easy task to reopen the station as (unlike at Wrea Green) the platform had never been removed after closure. Moss Side station therefore, was reopened in 1983, with the aid of a grant from Lancashire County Council.

This recording reflects the Wikipedia text as of 00:06 UTC on Thursday, 4 January 2018.
