MCRUA Blog passes 60,000 hits ….

Posted on December 22nd, 2012, by The Chairman

Who’d have thought when John Hulme came up with the idea of this Blog back in October 2009 that a blog primarily about the lines in Mid Cheshire would in 3 years get over 60,000 hits. But it has!

As I post this we’ve just passed 62,000. Since we started we’ve put up 366 posts and received 1,021 comments.

The most hits on one day was 284 on 1 June 2012 when we posted – Olympic Torch rides the Mid Cheshire line!!….

Prior to that the busiest day was on 30 March 2011 with – We’ve got the Hump!….

The busiest month so far has been April 2012.

Surprisingly, the post with the most hits has been Northern’s Green trains go Blue!…. I wonder how many people realised it related to Northern repainting the 30 year old class 150s that had been transferred up to Northern from London Midland!
