The ever-enterprising Pilning Station User Group have released a new song and video online to mark the second anniversary of their footbridge being demolished in November 2016. The song is a rewrite of John Lennon and Yoko Ono's song "Imagine", and includes lines like ("Imagine there's a footbridge / And platform lighting too"). It follows-on from last year's anniversary song, which reworked Prince's "Nothing Compares 2 U". Thanking you all for your contributions :)
