Thornton Station Resurfacing

The team at Thornton Station have recently been involved in laying a new base on the up platform at the station thanks to a delivery of 36 tons of road scalpings donated by Mr James Parr of Farmer Parrs Animal World, a tourist attraction located in Thornton.

This gift from Mr Parr will enable the team at Thornton to lay a new base on the up platform down to where the original buildings were when the line was operating.

Mr Parr also donated the scalpings that enabled the team at Thornton to resurface the down platform last year.

These scalpings provide an ideal base for the Tarmac topping that will eventually be needed on both platforms when we get a lease from Network Rail to operate trains on the line.
