Signs at Woodsmoor and Great Moor
The other day I ventured down to Woodsmoor Station which lies on the line to Hazel Grove. It was 12:54 and the indications were that a train to Manchester Piccadilly was due at 13:06 and was running "On Time" so I decided to wait for it.
At ten past one the 13:08 to Buxton pulled into the opposite platform.
The electronic sign still said the 13:06 to Manchester was running "On time" even though it was already 13:17!
I didn't wait any longer but walked up to the A6 at Great Moor to catch a bus instead.
The sign by the side of the road is one of a number erected at the time of the millennium. I've previously shown you ones at Offerton and at Reddish.
