    Wow.Kat..... that was very interesting to read...

    My second time to Liverpool, I arrived by train from London... I stepped off on Platform 7..and found it a lovely open train station of a feel...

    I am glad to read that they will keep it stone and in the feel of the historic one..

    2008 sure has brought about new development there.. Liverpool won't look the same at all... The times are sure a changing....

    At the moment I must say Lime Street around by where the Big Dig has been, the is a lacking in greenery! Anyone remember how nice the flower beds used to look in the traffic island at the top of St Johns Lane?

    One hopes that when the Gateway is completed, there will be some flora around, we are meant to be one of the greenest cities in the UK! The grey granite paving is so depressing atm.
