"Passing through" a terminus? Is it the Hogwarts Express?

Not passing through, the is Wigan Central the start of the journey to Manchester just before closure in 1964.

I recollect that a number of the locomotives using this line, had a distinctive funnel, shaped somewhat like a dunces hat, with the wide base at the top.

Baker. So very many large housing estates have been developed all around large towns, such has been the case in Wigan. For a person still living in the proximity, it must be more difficult to assimilate their previous knowledge of various areas, having lived through all of these changes, than a person that hasnít, and had long since moved away. I remember the depot that you refer to. Just down the street, where the Manley was situated, there was a row of houses, facing this depot.
