question about Erewhon
Author: ORNHOO

Ihave been watching episodes of "Ray Bradbury Theater" on the Comet cable channel (complete episodes are also on YouTube). The episode "the Town Where No One Got Off" includes scenes on board a VIA RDC and at the station for "Erewhon", the town referred to by the title. I was wondering if anyone can identify the locations used in filming (and it is old enough to have been shot on film) this episode. Thanks in advance.

Filming was on the CP MacTier Sub between bolton and palgrave.

The majority of the filming took place on the main track beside Bolton Station which was still an open train order office at the time.

Passing trains had to traverse the siding as we held the main.

I was the Conductor on the train.

The used the name Erewhon which is "Nowhere" spelled backwards.

I don't have the dates this filming took place as my Timebooks are long gone to the recycling bin, 

however I do believe it was in 1984 or 1985.

Ray Bradbury, being one of the more literary writers of the twentieth century and was never shy about paying homage to his literary forebears like Herman Melville, H.P.Lovecraft.......and Samuel Butler: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erewhon

Is the Bolton station still around?
