Folk Music Train detailsMay 16, 2010
The timings for next Sunday’s (May 23rd) Folk Music trains organised by Friends of Hindley Station have been confirmed. The trains are sponsored by GMPTE and Northern Rail, and feature folk duo “Two Blokes Playing Guitar”.
The first train will leave Victoria at 1209 and call Walkden at 1229 on its way to Wigan.
The musicians then returned from Wigan to Hindley on the 1317 from Wigan. The band will stay an hour at Hindley where you can view the gardening improvements made by the Friends group there while being entertained by the band.
The band leave Hindley on the 1422 departure, calling at Walkden 1439 on their return to Victoria.
The band are riding on normal, scheduled trains so regular fares and tickets will apply.
The music trains and celebrations at Hindley make a great complement to our own station gala and we hope lots of people will enjoy riding between Walkden and Hindley to see the festivities.
