The Townley Flyer steam train display was created to remember our local heritage of the old Middleton train station. The train station that used to be on Townley Street seemed to be a fitting location for a train display. Once the steam train was nearing the end of construction, Middleton in Bloom asked residents to name the train display. The steam train was named The Townley Flyer which was very fitting for this display being on Townley Street, Middleton. The naming of the coal cart was chosen due to The Arley Seam which was worked by all the Middleton collieries.
