The buildings were demolished soon after closure and no trace now remains, though a single track remains in use by Mid-Cheshire Line trains between Chester and Manchester Piccadilly. These now join the former BJR line at Mickle Trafford Junction, as the former CLC line to Chester and on to the steelworks and paper mill at Shotton was finally closed in October 1992 (having latterly been used for freight traffic only to allow direct access to both plants from the north).
