Sky Watch Friday: Beyond the Once a Week Station
This week's picture was taken last Tuesday morning from the top of a bus as it passed over Denton Railway Station.
Denton Station has the UK's least frequent train service, at once per week, in one direction, from Stockport to Stalybridge. It runs on Saturdays only, departing Stockport at 11:28 by request only for Stalybridge, arriving 11:37 at Denton.
The train is known amongst railway enthusiasts as the Ghost Train.
Behind the embankment is Audenshaw Reservoir and the M60 motorway.
We are looking North towards the Eastern edge of the Greater Manchester conurbation.
