Lostock Hall MPD Website
As hinted a few weeks ago, in memory of it's creator, the late Alan Castle, the Lostock Hall MPD website is now back on-line!

It now forms part of the Preston Station website, so has a different address to the one it previously had.

Station Tours...
As part of the nation-wide English Heritage Open Days programme, there will be a series of guided tours of Preston Station. These tours are now in their third year and not normally open to the general public. This year, there will be four tour-guides; two current railwaymen and one former employee at the station from the 1960s, are joined by a local poet to add some extra colour to proceedings.
Tours are on Sat/Sun 8th & 9th September, beginning @ 11.00, 13:00 & 15:00 hrs on both days. Meet Station Frontage.

The return of the Lostock Hall MPD website?
Also... I am frequently asked "what happened to the Lostock Hall website?"
The site was taken off-line shortly before the untimely passing of its editor - Alan Castle. For various reasons, it was decided to keep it offline until the 50th anniversary had passed, as he requested. With that date almost upon us, I am considering re-instating the website. More news here very soon...
