When was the last time Denton Station saw this much action?
This video clip featuring an enthusiasts special steam train was filmed last Friday at Denton Station. The footage is poor because it was filmed in near total darkness with a basic camcorder. However, the event has now been published and in the future curious people may view it as an historical record of what Denton Station was once like.
Denton Station is quite a famous station in railway enthusiast circles because of the bizarre service on offer for the discerning traveller; one train per week in one direction only (Stockport to Stalybridge). Andrew Gwynne MP has done good work in discussing the plight of Denton Station in Parliament. For a look into the history of this little used community asset click here.
