East Lancs kids on railway scheme to get free travel

First published in News

EAST Lancashire children taking part in a railway educational programme will be able to travel for free, it was announced.

‘Passport to Safe Rail Travel’ was set to launch at St Anne’s and St Joseph’s Primary School in Accrington today.

Two DVDs will be shown to children, who will then visit the town’s train station and spend a day carrying out activities.

The scheme, co-funded by Community Rail Lancashire and Northern Rail, will offer the children free rail travel between Clitheroe and Manchester, and Colne or Burnley Manchester Road and Preston, with a fare-paying adult, until March 31.

Another unconnected photo with a report showing third rail electric trains in southern England rather that a clapped out pacer belonging to Northern. Time Telegraph reporters did their homework properly!
