Rose Grove station, Lancashire (2)
Rose Grove station adjoins the 1970s-built M65 motorway which is just at the right-hand end of the road bridge here. In Germany, Holland or France, it would have been second-nature to provide a 'park and ride', or at least a 'kiss 'n' ride' here, but this kind of thinking did not enter the heads of the faceless bean-counters who were in charge of transport planning at the time.
Here a local train for Blackpool picks up a handful of passengers.
