More support for Sunday ServicesDecember 24, 2008
Regular readers of this blog will know that Worsley MP Barbara Keeley has been an active supporter of FOWS since our formation, and a long-time campaigner for Walkden station. Barbara has recently been pressing Northern Rail again to investigate a Sunday service from Walkden, and has received an update from their Area Director West Lee Wasnidge.
Mr Wasnidge has assured Barbara that the possibility of a Sunday service along the Walkden line is under discussion between Northern and GMPTE (who would need to part-subsidise the service), and that Northern will be working hard to turn this prospect into a success.
We regard this as a further encouraging sign that Sunday services are being given serious consideration by GMPTE and Northern Rail.
