Hollyoaks is a minor station on the north west periphery of Chester. The station serves the local village and a link to the M56 and an unmodelled (behind the hedge) car park make's it a park and ride rail head to the city centre explaining the very frequent train service. The line through
Hollyoaks is also used by loco hauled passenger and goods trains. Some goods trains serve the steel work, paper mill, and industrial estates to the west of the station. See Background for more details.
