Online Launch for Along the Line Rail Station Project

The Along the Line rail station project is set for its online launch and will feature impressive work from Blackburn University Centre students.

The project, facilitated by artist Karen Allerton, has seen the redecoration of Ramsgreave and Wilpshire train station with installed artwork created by our University Centre’s BA (Hons) Photography and Moving Image and BA (Hons) Graphic Design students.

Also featuring is fantastic contributions from Ribblesdale High School students, the local Alzheimer’s Society and Child Action North West. The artwork and imagery highlights the rich history of the station and the train lines it has been part of.

Supported by Community Rail Lancashire, the event will show the first ever viewing of the official Launch Film.
