It was unclear whether suitable electric rolling stock would be available in time for the completion of the work, but it was confirmed in April 2014 that electric trains would be available to operate the new electric services, and the first trains were introduced from March 2015, initially on the service to Manchester Airport, with services to Wigan North Western, Manchester Victoria and Warrington Bank Quay following over the course of the year.

The station will be mostly closed for 23 days from 30 September 2017 (limited services will run to/from Huyton and beyond during the latter stages of this blockade) and will also close in autumn 2018 (with dates yet to be confirmed).

The train arrived back at Lime Street at pm, marking the end of British Railways' final steam-hauled mainline passenger journey.

A large building constructed in the Renaissance Revival style fronts the station.

A branch of the West Coast Main Line from London Euston terminates at the station, as well as Trans Pennine Express trains and other train services.

The original terminus of the 1830 Liverpool and Manchester Railway (L&MR) was located at Crown Street, in Edge Hill, to the east of and outside the city centre. Construction of a purpose-built station at Lime Street in the city centre began in October 1833; the land was purchased from Liverpool Corporation for £9,000 (equivalent to £770,000 in 2015).

A twin track tunnel was constructed between Edge Hill and the new station before the station was built in 1832; it was used to transport building materials for the station.
