In the Spring of 2011, Northern Rail succeeded in what ought to have been a simple task of fixing a public address system on Slaithwaite and Marsden stations. It only took five years. If it seemed too good to last, it was. It took another 3 years for an obsolete system to be replaced.
But it’s working now.
Not only that, but as of Spring 2015 , information screens were installed at Slaithwaite and Marsden, funded by Metro.
