02/08/12Denton Station
One of the most under used stations in the country "Denton" popped up on the BBC website at the begining of July in a short film called On board a real-life 'ghost train'.
You won't see them every day, and they rarely run when you might actually want to use them - but they're beloved by rail enthusiasts.
