Has there ever been much call for these to be closed? In the times a train I have been on has called hardly anyone gets on, but saying that, I'm not on every train. I can see a point for Bescar Lane remaining open as that is kinda near the village it serves. New Lane is close to Martin Mere (~1 mile walk) but Hoscar seems to me to be the most unnecessary on the Southport line out of these three. Do any of you use these stations?
