East Lancashire Railways look to the future

June 7, 2009

The East Lancashire Railway plans to double its visitor numbers over the next decade.

The service which runs from steam trains from Heywood to Rawtenstall has employed specialist consultants Locum to identify ways of increasing revenues.

The 13-mile line along which it runs, generates around £4m a year for the local economy.

Possible future plans include a new railway heritage centre in Bury and  improvements to stations  at Heywood and Rawtenstall.

The line operates every weekend throughout the year and mid-week services operate during the school Easter holidays and from May to mid September.
