Spring Clean … and moreApril 22, 2008
We understand that the station has been scheduled for a “deep clean” from Northern Rail’s maintenance team. Although booking office staff and FOWS volunteers do what they can to keep the place clean, some of the dirt is so ingrained or inaccessible that only a team with specialist gear can tackle it. It’s been a very long time indeed since the station had a thorough clean, so this is very welcome news.
Another impending development to improve the appearance of the station is repainting.You may have noticed painting work has already started at Swinton and we understand the team from Network Rail are working their way along the stations on the line, so we hope to see them at Walkden soon.
