More information:

Fred Wood (1876-1934) In honour of a forgotten hero, who on this day in 1907 undoubtedly prevented the deaths of hundreds of local workers when the couplings broke on a heavily laden goods train as it approached this station. Over 50 laden wagons sped back down the line heading towards Dukinfield Station and an occupied 'workers' train. Turning the points, he forced the runaway train onto a track towards Dukinfield goods yard, narrowly averting a major disaster.
