    I like the idea of this. Its definately possible to have it running between town and toys r us but not sure how the old line is once past there. Did it not get built on around Cromwell rd rear of Greenlands ?

    I'm fairly certain the only part of the line you can't currently access between Skeffington Road and the bridge at Grimsargh is the small portion that was the old Fulwood train station. I remember as a kid when the cycle path was built that this became someone's back garden - was referred to as the Dingle house locally because it was rough looking. Not sure if the people who bought the house bought the land as well.
