80098, disguised as 80086
(why do they do it?) was standing waiting to depart for Heywood
via "the hump" - the feature where the line has to
rise to get over the Manchester Metro line.
had arrived at Bury having joined the train at Rawtenstall where
there is a better car parking facility. It was not the best of
impressions we gained at the Rawtenstall booking office where
the chap in charge was "busy" carrying on a 'phone
conversation with his friend while I tried to persuade him to
take the best part of £40 off me for two, day rover tickets.
He never stopped talking the whole time and, had I not travelled
some 65 miles to get there, I would have walked away - it is
so rude and needs sorting - someone from the ELR please note!
