    Does anybody have any pictures of the Kirkdale to Walton Junction and Kirkby Stations in pre-Merseyrail days?

    Also when did the second tunnel stop getting used in this location?

    yes i have many loads of kirkdale in all different years it has changed so much over the years i have just crashed my computer so i lost all the photos so i will try get them back soon the line running under kirkdale station the (canadadock branch) closed many years ago to passangers but it is still used for freight. the tunnel next to the current merseyrail tunnel at kirkdale closed when excange station closed as this was a fast track than ran from exchange station stright through kirkdale the 2 tunnels in the corrner of kirkdale station closed forever in the 1975 as the whole line closed with all its stations

    mmm memories running down the long cast iron and wood stairway late for work for a marvellous class 502 eleccy train to Exchange! to think the line nearly got closed in the 70s!

    remember watching the steam trains on the fast line as a kid from the Antonio St bridge too..

    look forward to seeing the photos!
