Manchester Victoria Station, UK - Telpher
« on: June 30, 2019, 10:26:00 PM »
Reading an old issue of the BackTrack Magazine I discovered something about Manchester Victoria Station, something of which I was completely unaware!

As an engineer in my past, I should have been aware of what a Telpher is. Sadly, I have only just realised!

It is an interesting piece of trivia.

The Telpher was used to transport parcels across the full width of the station and operated throughout the interwar period. You can find out more by following this link:
