how come one track looks used more than the other curious

Maybe theres no trains running.

There must be no trains running at present...I can't see any steam in the distance..!!

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?

Could be "High Noon", just a thought!!

You just missed it

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)

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.
