The train now approaching Platform 1 …

September 17, 2009

For the first time in years Walkden station now has a sign identifying platforms 1 (“for Manchester”) and 2 (“for Wigan, Kirkby and Southport”).

The sign, which hangs from the canopy in front of the exit from the stairs, is has black lettering on a white background rather than Northern Rail’s usual white lettering on dark blue, suggesting it is perhaps “second hand” from one of the other stations along the line (like Swinton or Atherton) that has been upgraded.

Still, it’s nice to know which platform is officially which, and is sure to be a help for new or irregular passengers.
