    I must admit that I did find the last one quite difficult to follow, although it was interesting learning about some of the lines that I'd not heard of before. Thanks Paul.

    Before we reached that station on the LNWR Droylsden to Stockport branch line, we would have called at Audenshaw (LNWR)(1888 to 1905) ... but to continue....
