    Default Do you have any more like that?

    Those are great pictures and I wonder if you have any more?

    In fact if anyone has any photos showing typical trains running into or out of Liverpool Exchange in the 1950s/1960s, I would love to see them.

    While I'm here I might as well ask a couple of questions I have asked elsewhere but without much success in terms of detailed replies:

    Does anyone have photos (or better still a scale drawing) of the 70ft Cowans Sheldon turntable that was at Bankhall Engine Shed?

    Does anyone have any photos showing the third rail electric trackwork of the Liverpool - Southport/Ormskirk system in the 1950s/1960s? As far as I can tell the track use standard 8ft 6ins sleepers offset to one side to mount the conductor rails. I would love confirmation that this was the case. Then the question is what happened where the conductor rails overlapped, i.e. where the conductor rail was swapped from one side of the track to the other? Were extra long sleepers used so both conductor rails could be mounted on the same (longer sleeper) or what? If anyone can answer that question, it will ensure that my model of the area around Kirkdale Carriage Sidings and Station is as accurate as possible!

    Thanks in anticipation.
