    In the past, when Blackpool Central was the town's main station, through trains between Blackpool and London Euston ran via the Fylde Coast line and called at St. Annes on the Sea.
    Another north-west coastal resort station which has now lost through services to/from Euston is Grange Over Sands.

    A tad confusing with two named stations shown emboldened above, so I will make an association with the second one....

    Mouldsworth was also opened by the West Cheshire Railway in 1870.

    There is a basic hourly service from Mouldsworth in each direction Monday to Saturday, with two additional weekday peak trains to and from Stockport. On Sundays there is a two-hourly service each way, with eastbound trains running through to Manchester, Wigan Wallgate and Southport.

    It is indeed strange and there were nearly four hours between the two postings being made.

    As we have seen some postings made since then, shall we carry on?
