    Post Train stations demolished /not in use

    please scroll down to the bottom of this website page, it contains photographs of train stations around the UK from bygone days
    can anyone remember any of them, interestingly I found the links to little tell tail signs such as reminants of walls, posts and a then and now photograph showing where the stations once stood.
    I never knew Central Station was so big!
    anyway heres the link enjoy looking back in history and lets see if anyone can spot any Markers (reminants)

    nice to have u back Kat.

    One station that has always facinated me is the one between Aigburth and St. Michaels. Otterspool I think it was called.

    Nice to be back, I lost posting function for some reason, anyway, yes, I think there is a mention of the station you talk about in your post, I couldnt beleive the size of central station, or even the woodside station over here on the wirral with regular train services to london from the wirral!
    look how clean and litter free some of the old black and white photographs are
    no rubbish bins either!

    there is a photograph of that station taken in 1910, copy right John Alsop
    look for liverpool then central station upper then scroll down and look for the links on the page to Otterspool.

    You ever seen the station house for that Kev? You could get to it at one point via Otterspool Park - maybe still can?

    We used to use Exchange Station all the time till they closed it, as we were in Maghull at the time.

    I currently live round the corner from it and overlook the car park now built on the old site.

    Looking at those pics on that site, shows how as a kid you don't always remember things as the buildings on the right of Moorfields looking up to station don't register at all.

    Very interesting, Kat! Many thanks!

    I just bought an old poscard of Central Station which makes me especially interested in the old and present views. So thanks again.
