ABC Wednesday - O is for Oldham Mumps
Oldham Mumps station on the Manchester Victoria to Rochdale line, photographed on a rainy day in September 2008. The station is cut off from the town by the bypass and access is via an underpass. The rain was so heavy that day I took these two photographs and caught the next train back to Victoria.
Here we are looking back along the line towards Manchester.
Oldham Mumps along with other stations along the line closed on October 4th 2009 and will be shut for two years. When it reopens it will be part of the Manchester Metrolink network. More information can be found on the GMPTE website and the Light Rail Transit Association website.
