Good news if you live in Chorley – heck, there has to be good news sometimes! It comes in the form of the new £6.8 million station Buckshaw Parkway, which opened on Monday and sees two regional Northern Rail trains per hour in each direction on Monday to Saturday daytimes (between Manchester and Preston) with Transpennine Express stopping there hourly from 18th October. Its design is the new Network Rail modular look, as used at Mitcham Eastfields and Corby. Here’s a great action shot taken by Tom Eyles on the opening morning.
