Buckshaw Parkway

The first train to call at the new Buckshaw Parkway station was 150269 on the 0619 Blackpool North to Manchester Victoria on 3 October 2011. With representatives of Network Rail, the train operator Northern, local radio and a group of photographers, passengers boarding were outnumbered - but at 0658 in the morning and with a little uncertainty over the opening of the station it was hardly surprising. (The balance was restored for the following service.)
