It certainly does not have many riders!

I bet there's interesting scenery to appreciate along the train trip...
God bless you!

Looks more like a bus than a train. No wonder train companies don't make any money with just 2 passengers on board.

Where's the passage to walk along?
It seems to be full of seats.

This was the front carriage - or more accurately the back carriage - trains consist of several carriages and the front and rear both have engines so the train doesn't have to actually turn round at termini - just travel in t'opposite direction.

There were three seats on one side and two on t'other and a gangway between.

There were probably three or four carriages and there would have been more people in those but not a lot more on this journey.

The train would have been fairly full on its inward journey to Manchester and return trains after about 4pm would have been busier.

ah, now i can see the gangway - a little bit of trompe l'oeil...
