...is for sale, BBC News reports Chapeltown railway station sale https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-eng...on-up-for-sale

But I wonder who'd live in a place like that?

There was one like that that used to be a part of a salvage yard in killamarsh. It closed down, the site was sold and levelled and left. Still left doing nowt - and I hope who ever bought it is losing money on it.

If only I had plenty of spare cash, would make a unique home for someone. Tbh I thought it had already been turned into a house

I doubt it. He'd have no transport links to where he'd now be working.
O, Mr Porter, what should he do?

That's not a problem.

A mate of mine drives the first route of the day for Stagecoach and gets to the bus depot by scooter.
