Built above street level, its platforms extending over the B6104 road, it has a spiral staircase which once had a glass-roofed dome. The booking hall and offices are on the first floor, with a subway and stairs to the platforms. Trains arrive from both Marple on the Sheffield line, and Marple Rose Hill.
Immediately beyond Romiley, the line splits three ways. Initially it ran through to Woodley to join the original MS&L line at Hyde Junction. In 1875 a more direct route was opened through Reddish. A further branch (opened in 1869) led to Stockport Tiviot Dale, which at one time carried through trains from Derby  but this was closed in 1967 and subsequently lifted.
The station is covered by a Ditra Systems Public Address System (PA), voiced by Phil Sayer.
On Mondays to Fridays four trains per hour go northbound to Manchester Piccadilly (one via Guide Bridge) and three per hour go towards Marple (two continuing to New Mills Central and one every two hours through to Sheffield) and one per hour to Rose Hill Marple southbound.
On Saturdays there is a similar level of service to Manchester and Marple, but an hourly service to New Mills and Sheffield.
On Sundays there is a two hourly service towards Manchester Piccadilly and Sheffield.
As part of Manchester's Transport Innovation Fund (TIF) bid, which would see a weekday peak time congestion charge introduced on roads into the city centre in order for a £3bn injection into the region's public transport, it has been announced that Marple railway station would see an increase to four services per hour in both directions throughout the day to Manchester Piccadilly.
This would therefore mean an increase to five services per hour from Romiley, with possibility for more, should services from Rose Hill be increased as discussed. The line would effectively be run as a "tram-train" operation, offering users of stations along the route the ease of showing up without generally needing to know exact departure times.
Romiley railway station was also planned to become an official "TIF Park & Ride" interchange under the proposals, which faced a public referendum in December 2008. These were rejected by a substantial margin , leaving the scheme's future in doubt.
