The signs are aglow on Gathurst Station
Providing the public with information.
Flowers bloom in Station Planters
Soothing the brow of Late Train Ranters.
Water is gathered in a barrel green
It's such a calming, pleasant scene.
There's nowhere else in all our Nation
That can compete with Gathurst Station.

My Grandfather Bryson lived in Gathurst when he & his family first came to Wigan from Scotland. I often wonder if he went to work on the train from this station, he had no transport back then.

A quaint lived-in appeal about your Photo, Mick; with Bletchley Park-style huts, for good measure. And Mr. Tease's decision to select particular 'points' of the station, and to then colour them with fine lines, was a great idea.

Station looking good. Remember it very well when I used to live in Shevington during the 1950's / 1960s. Remember getting a train from there to go train spotting at Wigan Wallgate Station every Saturday afternoon and returning round about 5 just in time to get home for tea. Yes those were the days. Station used to be Gathurst for Shevington
