Here is a round up of what main activities have occurred along this line with some promising news at Squires Gate Station.
The angled section near the garages is in the correct place for possible step free access to be installed, fingers crossed..
Volunteers from Friends of St Anne's stations hopped on the train to do some tidying up and painting at Squires Gate.
This station is still recruiting for volunteers. The friends group is still in it's infancy but with the aid of the friends from St Annes station much progress is taking place.
Rouge sand is a feature along the platforms as being so close to the dunes and beach but thats all been cleared with the objective to repair the wooden fence and spruce up the flower beds.
"Productive morning at Squires Gate, we managed to get the grey undercoat on in between trains. Northern blue next week just to keep it in line with colour schemes. Paul thought the "weed train" might be due at some time."
You can see the light trail from a train set going back to Preston too. One of the many reasons to visit our brilliant Blackpool and take pride in our railway.
Bobby Ball helping Elizabeth Mulligan Rojas and Councillor Ray Thomas attend to the station’s floral displays at Lytham Station.
These ‘hands on’ volunteers work so hard and achieve such great results for the station platform.
Great work and thanks Bobby for joining in and helping us out today. If anyone has any free time to help this spring/summer please message us."
Firstly back in February and March the matrix display on one train set was a little lost for it's destination.
Keen eyed travelers were on the hunt for the offending unit waiting patiently to catch it's number for it's report.
"I have found the train that says Ainsdale and Fairhaven. We will get it sorted." it said on the Friends Station Facebook page.
150142 was the culprit, but all is well as the issue has now been resolved.
Friends Group say "Lovely day working at the station today, working out what we need to do and when lovely time of year to make plans with gardens."
The friends group have been out at the station recently attending to the flower beds and general appearance of the station. Now the early bulbs are finishing no doubt there is much more to do.
Peter Fitton and his team keep the station free of leaf fall from the surrounding trees among many other duties.
"Volunteers have been busy at Moss Side in recent weeks. Thank you Peter Fitton for the photos."
By adding plants, community activity signs minor repairs separates each station to show the characters who tend to them.
This pattern happens right across the country with the aid of train operators, Network Rail, ACORP, Community Rail Partnerships.
