    Default Walton Junction station info required

    I'm looking for information about Walton Junction station as I'm finding it hard to pin down.
    Can anyone tell me where it was (on the corner of which road or whatever), when it opened, when it closed and what stands in its place now?
    I believe there was a crash there in June 1867 in which a number of people were killed.
    All info very gratefully received, thanks in advance for your help.

    Hello researchwriter

    It looks like the book that can be previewed at the top of this Google search might give you some information:

    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q...ction+accident

    I'd also suggest a newspaper search. It's possible that some reports may already be on the internet -- I tried to see if the Mersey Times site might have something but failed to find anything. You might recheck there also though.

    Thanks Chris. Sadly, you can only take the tiniest peek at the book online (a sentence and a half for each search result) and the actual volume is about 17. Still, a slight lead none the less. Cheers.

    Why start a second thread on the same subject?
    This question has been answered, I think.

    Thanks for your answer in the other thread Phil.

    It was suggested that I start a separate thread by another member

    which I did before you answered my question... in the other thread... this has got too confusing now hasn't it?

    Thanks for the info anyway.

    Incidentally, I'd still like to know more about when the station opened, when it changed over to being Walton station and anything anyone knows about the crash.

    Thanks
