    A renewals project would be funded from a different pot to an enhancement so joined up thinking isn't always that easy...

    Hi

    Problem with this and the earlier map you posted is that for existing lines it just assumes former stations are reopened which is highly unlikely.

    Stations planned on the Bootle Branch are...

    Not sure where you get all this from but the only stations planned for that line are Edge Lane, Tue Book and Anfield.

    Please don't quote things in this factual manner if you can't back them up.

    The winding engine for the Victoria Tunnel was definately at Edge Hill.

    An article appeared in The Railway Magazine May-June 1942 on Cable Operation at Liverpool and London. This says that the...

    Hi

    When I first mentioned the possibility of a stationary engine at this place I did say it was pure conjecture and that I was doubtfull myself. To be honest I just don't believe they would build...

    Hi

    I have a copy of that accident report.... It was a runaway caused by a broken coupling between the 7th and 8th wagon of a train of 23 loaded wagons and a brake van. The train was travelling up...

    Hi Guys

    I have found a reference to an accident report dated 10/07/1872 for Liverpool Byrom Street. Whilst this is highly unlikely to be the Joseph Hesketh event due to the date it may well give...

    Hi Guys

    There has been some very useful and interesting views posted here following the find of the article in the Liverpool Mercury.

    So if I may be so bold to summarise the evidence we have so...

    Hi Ged

    The hut appears to be of standard LMS/BR design so post dates the water tank by many years.

    Excellent find Marky. The two sidings are also shown on the 1890 edition 1/500 map held in Liverpool Record Office but by then the watertank appears to have gone. The L's do indeed denote lamps.

    Hi Waterways

    I agree completely the point is 'passenger' station. Problem is people are still implying it was regularly used as a stop off point yourself included. Dropping off say a signalman at...

    Hi Oritelad

    Yet again you say hardly any info which implies there is some. Please let us know what that info is!

    I will be the first to hold my hand up and congratulate you on finding a long...

    Sorry still don't believe you. The newspaper cutting is a nice snippet but proves nothing on it's own. As others have said reports of this period are often quite inaccurate. I will however check the...

    Hi Cadfael

    Agree completely! I think the steps down are preserved but that's it!

    There was never a passenger station at Woodside. It was only ever goods. The date of opening is unknown but it closed 06/03/1961. The 1849 OS maps show a level crossing here but that was later closed...

    I think the lines into the exhibition are 'goods only' and the station was as sketched on the map. A couple of reasons for this -

    1. Station appears to have been known as Exhibition Road (see...

    These aren't the normal 25in OS maps but the 'super scale' 50in one's. I copied loads for the Edge Area years ago and looking through most are surveyed 1890, my mistake. The sheet in question is...
