Expansion at Halton
A new railway themed playground for children is nearing completeion at the 7.25" gauge Halton Miniature Railway in Runcorns, 'Mousetrap Hall Station' site.
The playgroud is in the middle of the railways return loop. With the station on one side, trains depart and run over a level crossing before making the 10 minute journey, returning to the station over some tram style track in the footpath.
The playground is a small part of the improvement works to the park being carried out by Halton Borough Council.
Expected opening is Easter, and an open weekend is planned on 17th & 18th April to celebrate.
