Last Look at Trafford Park

(All 1.5.1986 copyright Steve Sainsbury/Rail Thing)

A last look at some of the lines that in 1986 littered the Trafford Park Estate in Manchester. I walked a fair bit of the lines but didn't see a single item of rolling stock.

I think at least part of this system survives, but it seems crazy that it is not busy with trains, offering a far more efficient delivery service than our crumbling roads ever will. Hopefully as time goes by more and more of this system will come back to life and offer an inspiration to other estates around the country, giving them a resilence that road-only served estates will only be able to dream of!

  1. Quite agree seeing as how are building a new multi-modal interchange 'nearby'
