Back in the '50s I lived close to Chassen Road station, Flixton and used Manchester Central whenever we visited Manchester by train. I have lots of memories of the horses with their nose bags holding grain,and looking into the two(?) glazed cases holding detailed models of ships. Does anyone know where the models are now? My family were very proud that Central station had the next highest/largest span roof after St Pancras. Was this true? Other memories were the change in noise as we approached Central over the girder bridge close to Castlefield. Since I moved away from Manchester, I've visited Central once - to attend an exhibition.
