Luckily, Grestley's A4 Union of South Africa 600009 happenned to steam through whilst we were visiting.
One of two new ramps being built costing £1.9m.
In 2010/11, Littleborough station's annual passenger usage was 354,000 whereas the Heaton Chapel station passenger usage in 2010/11 was 570,000.
HENCE HEATON CHAPEL STATION IS 60% MORE BUSY THAN LITTLEBOROUGH!
It's time for the dangerous steep 1 in 9 illegally steep disabled ramps with no landings at Heaton Chapel to be replaced as well!
