A deserted Gathurst railway station.

how come one track looks used more than the other curious


Comment by Mick on 16th November 2010 at 07:04
Maybe theres no trains running.


Comment by Fred Mason on 16th November 2010 at 09:48
There must be no trains running at present...I can't see any steam in the distance..!!


Comment by Linda on 16th November 2010 at 15:55
You want to be there at 7.30 am weekdays, especially when the previous train has been cancelled or running late-busy, busy! Looks like one track is more exposed to damp than t'other. Nice pic though, Dan

I remember when Gathurst station was sold off and converted to a pub. Is it still one or has it been sold back again?


Comment by pat on 16th November 2010 at 18:01
Could be "High Noon", just a thought!!


Comment by Degsie on 16th November 2010 at 19:52
You just missed it


Comment by Art on 17th November 2010 at 01:14
The station building is now a pub, but the station itself is still in use. Pay on the train or if you're lucky like me, use your bus pass.
Cost to M/C airport & all point en route?...£0 ;o)

Comment by kev culshaw on 22nd November 2010 at 18:17

Comment by gerald pilkington canada on 13th January 2011 at 23:23

Comment by Gareth Fairhurst on 22nd November 2013 at 10:24
I agree with Linda about seeing the station at 7.30am, especially if the previous train has been cancelled, which happens a lot these days.
