The film is a beautifully produced odyssey along the line, with strategic stops every so often showing the many attraction sf Stockport, Knutsford, Northwich and Delamere Forest.
There's a brief glimpse of the Middlewich line as it joins the main line at Northwich (see picture, above). As you can see, the current layout means that trains travelling to and from Middlewich, Sandbach and Crewe can only use the track on the extreme left which runs into the third platform at Northwich Station before rejoining the main line East of the station. It's possible that when the line is re-opened the connections to and from the main up and down Manchester-Chester lines may be re-instated, to allow our trains to use any of the platforms.
