Top regional rail executive Alex Hynes has given his seal of approval to community partnership work which has turned Todmorden railway Station into somewhere special and well-placed to take advantage of upswings in passenger numbers.

Managing director of service operator Northern Rail, Mr Hynes was shown around high spots and innovations made at the station by station master Matt Gibson and TCRP’s Mary Clear, and he also shed some light on why services set to use the £9m reinstated Todmorden Curve are not yet in place.

Mr Hynes saw innovations such as the free read-it-and-return-it library, the herb tubs on the platforms, the artwork done by Todmorden schoolchildren and casting work courtesy of Todmorden company Weir, as well as looking at work under way to improve station approach.
