Runcorn East marks the final year of the First World War ....

To mark the final year of the First World War Silent Silhouette soldiers have been appearing in various parts of the UK. The silhouettes will be displayed across the country by businesses, local authorities and individuals as a reminder of the sacrifices made during the First World War.

Runcorn East’s Silent Silhouette has been sponsored by Halton Borough Council, it is located in the garden adjacent to the booking office and we are incredibly proud and humbled at North Cheshire Rail Users Group that Runcorn East Station was picked for the location of one of the regions silhouettes to remember those who served, sacrificed and changed our World during WW1.

Helsby Station Footbridge ....

Helsby Station Footbridge is nearing the end of a 6 month project to fully restore the aging 100 year old structure. These projects are never straight forward and the restoration has overrun by some weeks. But with protective wrap now removed were able to get our first glimpse of the bridge complete with new sets of steps replacing the ones that were in a very poor state. The bridge floor is still at a slightly higher level that the original which means the raised bridge sides that were installed last year will remain. Its expected the bridge will be back in use in the next couple of weeks with the two temp bridges removed by December.
