    Great subject for a website. I love the maps.

    I just noticed one of the links isn't working though.

    On the Other Tunnels page the link to the photos for Dingle Tunnel. The link is to
    hhttp:// etc (its got an extra h at the front)

    The caption:
    Disused Platform At Liverpool Central Built When A Connection Was Going to Be Made With The Wapping Tunnel

    Platform? That is a tunnel.

    Oritlad. Great job. Just one thing, have the text "boxed" or left aligned not centred. Use this map if you want to.

    See the owner of it:


    Use this as well. Mine, and you can use it. An underground Circle Line using existing tunnels:



    The text for it is here. You are welcome to use anything.

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    Oritelad, some great pictures, however they need captions explaining what they are and any relevant detail. Keep up the great work.

    Hello oritelad - I may be able to help a little as regards kirkdale station. I
    had occasion to use it quite a lot in the 1930's and if memory serves me right
    there were no platforms for the fast trains. I don't know what stations they
    served and my main interest was seeing them roar through the station
    belching out lots of black smoke and steam and noise! On occasions, if the
    time was right, I used to be able to take a stopping steam train as far as
    Walton Junction which was also actually more convenient for getting to
    where I was going.This train came in on the same platform as the normal Ormskirk service. And this went for the return service also. Incidently, I
    have no recollection at all of any other line using the station.
    If I may raise a point that you may be able clarify. Was there in
    the 30's a Walton station on the Ormskirk line or was Orrell Park the next
    station after Kirkdale? I only ask because I recently read (on this site) that
    the present Walton station is now where Walton Junction used to be.
    I have always had a great affection for Kirkdale Station -it was for
    me the epitome of what a railway station should be. The photo of how it was
    in the 30's - which I came across recently on another thread - is absolutely
    brilliant!!
    Good luck with your researching - Stan H
