Welcome to the Friends of Reddish South Station website.
This site will keep you updated about the progress of the recently formed "Friends Of Reddish South Station" group that aims to tidy and maintain the little used station. Its long term aim is to fight for the introduction of a regular service to Stockport and the south and Manchester Victoria to the northwest.
Our main point of contact for news or official items is the Secretary FORSS, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and we also have a secondary e-mail address for photos email@example.com. If you have any photos of our recent events or special trains, please forward them to this address and we will try to include them on our pictures page. We are also on "Twitter" @DavdoFo .

Feb 3rd 2017. Ghost Train.
Todays train alone got 11 passengers from Reddish South with a further 3 from Denton. There were also 17 already on the train from Stockport. Bearing in mind that this Parliamentary "Ghost Train" only goes one way to Stalybridge once a week, and not to Manchester Victoria, then this shows for one, that the passenger figures for a full year from TfGM are way out , and secondly that there are plenty of residents in both Reddish and Denton really would support a proper passenger service to Manchester Victoria that TfGM will simply not recognise or acknowledge.
