Barbara Keeley meets Northern Rail MD Heidi Mottram

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.
