We received this from a contact at Northern, this week."We had to take down Bunting from Chelford station last week as we can not have it along the electric lines."
As the village is gearing up for the Coronation celebrations, we have been asked by Northern to ensure that all are aware that no bunting is allowed on the station platforms or buildings.
The cables which power the trains run at 25,000V and the train companies are necessarily very careful and prohibit the use of anything that could come into contact with the overhead cables. This applies to all stations with overhead cables.
