A look at Manchester Piccadilly railway station on the morning of Friday 11th May 2018. Manchester Piccadilly is one of the biggest and busiest stations in the country outside London so there is always much happening. It has 12 terminal platforms and 2 through platforms where trains from the south and north-east of England continue on to places such as Liverpool, Southport, Blackpool, Glasgow, Edinburgh, North Wales and Cumbria. The terminal platforms handle Virgin Trains services to and from London Euston, Arriva Crosscountry services to Birmingham and other southern England destinations, Arriva Trains Wales services to Cardiff and other destinations in South Wales and FirstTranspennine Express services to Hull, Newcastle, Scarborough, Cleethorpes and Manchester Airport. Local stopping services provided by Northern Rail serve the south and south east Manchester suburbs and beyond including Stockport, Macclesfield, Stoke-on-Trent, Alderley Edge, Crewe, New Mills, Sheffield, Buxton, Hazel Grove, Hadfield, Marple, and Rose Hill Marple. Piccadilly also has the metrolink station underneath the main platforms and I have done some brief footage of this at the end of the video.

A wet and windy day down in Manchester Piccadilly on the West Coast Mainline during the early Rush Hour on a Tuesday. We arrived from London Euston on a Virgin Trains pendolino in first class. Manchester Piccadilly info: Manchester Piccadilly is the principal railway station in Manchester, England. Opened as Store Street in 1842, it was renamed Manchester London Road in 1847 and Manchester Piccadilly in 1960. Located to the south-eastern side of Manchester city centre, it hosts intercity and cross-country services to national destinations including London Euston, Birmingham, Bristol, Southampton, South Wales and Scotland, and local and regional services to destinations in Northern England including Liverpool, Leeds, Sheffield, Newcastle and York. It is one of 19 major stations managed by Network Rail. The station has twelve terminal platforms in the train shed and two through platforms to the south of it. Piccadilly is also a major interchange with the Metrolink light rail system with two tram platforms in its undercroft. Piccadilly is the busiest station in the Manchester station group with more than 25 million passenger entries and exits between April 2015 and March 2016, (the other major stations in Manchester are Oxford Road and Victoria). It is the fourth busiest station in the United Kingdom outside London. The station hosts services from six train operating companies. It is the second busiest interchange station outside London, with almost 3.8 million passengers changing trains there annually. Refurbishment took five years and cost £100m in 2002, it was the most expensive improvement on the UK rail network at the time. According to an independent poll carried out in 2007, Manchester Piccadilly had the highest customer satisfaction level of any UK station, with 92% of passengers satisfied compared with the national average of 60%. A TWAO application to build two extra platforms was made in October 2016 and construction is expected to commence after the completion of the Ordsall Chord in January 2018. High Speed 2 proposals would require five more platforms and reconfiguration of the Metrolink station. History: In June 1840 the Manchester and Birmingham Railway (M&BR) opened a temporary terminus on its line to Stockport on Travis Street. Its permanent station, Store Street, adjacent to London Road opened on 8 May 1842. It had two platforms, offices and passenger amenities and by then the line extended to Crewe. A large site, 1,700 ft (518 m) long by 500 ft (152 m) wide containing terraced houses and industrial premises had been cleared to make way for the station, which was built on top of a viaduct, 30 ft (9 m) above ground level. The station was shared from the beginning with the Sheffield, Ashton-under-Lyne and Manchester Railway (SA&MR) after an agreement in 1837 by the promoters. The M&BR amalgamated with other railways to create the London and North Western Railway (LNWR) in 1846, and the SA&MR changed its name to the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway (MS&LR) three years later. Manchester London Road: The station's name was changed to London Road in 1847. In 1849 the Manchester, South Junction and Altrincham Railway (MSJA&R) began using the station when it opened its line from Manchester Oxford Road station. Its single platform, opened on 1 August 1849 to the south of, and adjacent to, the main part of the station was the predecessor of the through platforms 13 and 14. The MSJA&R's line connected to the main line just south of the station, forming a through route to the LNWR's line to Liverpool. London Road was overcrowded by the 1850s and the relationship between the LNWR and MS&LR was poor. In 1862 the companies agreed to rebuild and expand the station so it could be divided, with the MS&LR occupying the north-eastern side and the LNWR occupying the south-western side. The rebuilt station had a new entrance and concourse and a 656 ft (200 m) long iron and glass trainshed consisting of two 95 ft (29 m) wide arched spans covering the terminal platforms, one for each company's platforms. While under construction on 20 January 1866, part of the roof collapsed killing two workmen and injuring 30 more. An enquiry found the collapse was due to strong winds and heavy snowfall. Both companies built warehouses to the northern side of the station and the viaduct south of the station to Ardwick was widened to four tracks. Within ten years, the station was again overcrowded as traffic continued to increase and further expansion was required. Between 1880 and 1883 the LNWR widened its side of the station and added more platforms which were covered by two extra 69 ft (21 m) wide arched spans to the trainshed. At the same time the MSJ&AR platform was taken out and rebuilt as an island platform on a girder bridge over Fairfield Street. It was linked to the main station by a footbridge. The improvements were opened in May 1882

Welcome to the latest episode of Big Trip! Today I am at Manchester Piccadilly on the West Coast Main Line and one of the main terminus stations of it where services are seen by Northern, Virgin Trains, Transpennine Express, CrossCountry, Transport for Wales and East Midlands Trains. Manchester Piccadilly was an excellent station to film at with variety all over the station at every point you looked. The station has a magnificent canopy and has some lovely views in every direction from this station. It is a Network Rail managed station and has a lot of platforms, so it took a lot of manoeuvring around to get a little bit of everything but I think it's safe to say I got at least one of everything covered. In terms of facilities, you could mistake this station for a shopping centre for sure as there's restaurants and lots of different shops all over, this station is basically integrated with a lot of things. I highly recommend this amazing station, I'll definitely be back!

London Euston to Manchester Piccadilly via Crewe on the 14::40 Virgin Trains Euston to Piccadilly on Thursday 15th December 2011, in 1st class. Crewe is the first stop, followed by Wilmslow and Stockport. Exactly 21 years - to the day - since I filmed a trip from Euston to Crewe. Then, as a teenager, I filmed a trip on a Class 90-hauled Inter-City train, with Mk 3 coaches (that trip on the 16::40 from Euston to Crewe on 15th December 1990 is also on YouTube). This time, post-privatisation, it's a Virgin Pendolino EMU for the journey. Unlike the 1990 film, most of this trip was filmed in daylight (start time 2 hours earlier) with night only setting in at Crewe, so more of the southern half of the West Coast Main Line can be seen. This route to Manchester utilises more of the WCML itself than the route via Stoke-on-Trent, which branches off before Stafford and the lesser-used route via Stone and Macclesfield which branches off just after Stafford. Filmed in full HD 1080p.

A very enjoyable and quiet afternoon spent at Manchester Piccadilly on the West Coast Mainline where we see plenty of services from Virgin Trains, Cross Country, Northern, Transport For Wales, Transpennine Express and East Midlands Trains. Manchester Piccadilly wasn't at first called Manchester Piccadilly. It's history and long and varied and very interesting to say the least. At first the station was opened in 1842, it consisted of 2 platforms, offices and passenger facilities such as a waiting room and toilets. By the time the station had opened the line had been extended to Crewe. During the same time there was a large area cleared for the construction of the station which resulted in the removal of terraced houses and several industrial outlets which would also make way for a railway viaduct to be built. All of this was done by the Manchester and Birmingham Railway. In 1846 the Manchester and Birmingham Railway amalgamated with several other companies to form the London & Northwestern Railway. The station was named Store Street when it was first built by in 1847 was renamed London Road. 2 years later the station was being used by the Manchester, South Junction and Altrincham Railway when the line to Manchester Oxford Road was completed. It was using a single platform that would serve as the predecessor to the through platforms that are 13 and 14. By the time the 1850's made an appearance the relationship between the two companies that were using the station had near enough fallen apart so an agreement was made between the two to completely rebuild the station which would allow them both to still use it but have no interaction with one another, the MS&LR was running on the north-eastern side and the LNWR was operating on the south-western side. The station was given a huge make over, a new entrance and concourse was built. A 200 meter long iron and glass trainshed was built which would cover the terminal platforms, during the construction of the roof it collapsed resulting in the fatality of 2 workers and injuring 30 more. The cause of the accident was determined to be the result of heavy snowfall and strong winds. Over the course of the next few years both railway companies built warehouses to the northern side of the station and the viaduct to the South was widened to accommodate four tracks. The peace was not long lasts however as during the next 10 years the station once again started to see far to much passenger usage for the size of the current station so further upgrades were needed to increase the number of platforms. The single use platform was redesigned as an island platform which now stands as platforms 13 + 14 and was connected via a footbridge. All the completions were finally made in 1882. Between the years of 1958 and 1966 the station was rebuilt as part of the West Coast Mainline modernisation plan by British Railways and was officially renamed Manchester Piccadilly in 1960. When the station was being rebuilt it cost roughly £1.7 million which in todays money is around the £38 million Mark. This was done for the preparation of the electrification of the line and to allow electric trains to run into the station, the actual roof that spans over the station is the same roof that was built all those years ago and has been given some work over the years to keep it safe. It was shortened slightly towards the concourse end of the station. Most of the other work that was taking place around the station was to relaying of tracks and new signalling being installed as well platforms being made out of solid concrete. Towards the end of the 1980's platforms 13 and 14 were lengthened for the larger trains operating on the network. During this time a new rail link was being opened which would run right through Manchester which in turn would allow trains from the north of the country to run right into the heart of machester instead of having to go around the city which resulted in shorter journey times. In 2002 the station was yet again given a major overhaul, this was in part to do with the 2002 commonwealth games. As such it meant that £100 million was given. This meant that the glass roof could be worked on which allowed for new plains of glass to be installed and for it to be repainted. A new concourse was built complete with a mezzanine floor which contained shops and various dining outlets. And ever since then various projects have taken place to make the station more appealing with new shops and better facilities for passengers and station staff. The incident at the end of the film turned up to be a suicide at Macclesfield station. My next station is going to be Kings Cross.

The Class 390 Pendolino is a type of electric high-speed train operated by Virgin Trains in the United Kingdom, leased from Angel Trains. They are electric multiple units using Fiat Ferroviaria's tilting train Pendolino technology and built by Alstom. Fifty-three units were originally built between 2001 and 2004 for operation on the West Coast Main Line (WCML). The 8-car units were all later lengthened to 9 cars, then an additional four trains and also a further 62 cars were built between 2009 and 2012. The trains of the original batch were the last to be assembled at Alstom's Washwood Heath plant, before its closure in 2005. The remaining trains in the fleet were built in Italy. The Class 390 is one of the fastest domestic electric multiple units operating in Britain, with a design speed of 140mph (225km/h); however, limitations to track signalling systems restrict the units to a maximum speed of 125mph (200km/h) in service. In September 2006, the Pendolino set a new speed record, completing the 401 miles (645km) length of the West Coast Main Line from Glasgow Central to London Euston in 3 hours, 55 minutes, beating the 4-hour-14-minute record for the southbound run previously set in 1981 by its ancestor, British Rail's Advanced Passenger Train. The APT retains the ultimate speed record for this route, having completed the northbound journey between London Euston and Glasgow Central in 3 hours 52 minutes in 1984 which included a 5-minute delay due to a signal fault. The fleet is maintained at the Alstom Manchester Train Depot near Piccadilly station.
