New Platform 4 opens at Rochdale Station

The new ‘Bay’ platform at Rochdale Station was cleared for services on the 28th October 2016.  On Monday 31st October a group of STORM members returning from an outing to Eccles caught the 22:50  Blackburn service, terminating at Rochdale due to overnight engineering works.

 

To the surprise of our members the service terminated on Platform 4, the new bay, and was due to depart again in the path of the last up Blackburn to Manchester Victoria.

 

The question STORM members would like answering is ‘is this the first passenger service to use the new platform’?
