The Mid Cheshire Line has been featured in an 8 page full colour feature in the national Rail Magazine edition 738. 

Steve Broadbent writes ....

If you were suddenly to awake to find yourself on a train, unsure of where you were, and you then looked out of the carriage window at a well-kept station with carefully tended flowerbeds and hanging baskets, you’d be safe to assume you were on a line that boasted a Community Rail Partnership.

You look further, and notice station displays of excellent art works, and boxes handily containing timetables and information on local walks and facilities.

If the countryside is rolling, green and pleasant, you might well be travelling on the Mid-Cheshire Line, on which hourly trains clatter and amble from the urban areas of Manchester and Stockport through what the newspapers traditionally call the ‘Cheshire stockbroker belt’ to Northwich and Chester.
