CRL - Community Rail Lancashire

Make A Beeline For West Lancs

Community Rail Lancashire are encouraging passengers to make a Beeline for their stations.

‘Make a Beeline for the Station!’ is a community marketing project, that combined the vital elements of local education and wider group engagement with tourism attractions and professional marketing.

The pupils of Rufford Church of England Primary School and Rice Lane Primary School were vital to the project; producing all the fantastic nature-themed artwork whilst learning about the environmental benefits of using the train.

They also planted bee-friendly flowers at various locations along the line to encourage more wildlife.

This artwork has been displayed along the line, to highlight various key locations, as well as used in the line poster.

Travelling from vibrant Liverpool into historic Lancashire, or vice versa, you can experience a wide range of exciting family activities, where a regular service with both Northern and Merseyrail provides hassle-free access.
