    Yes, post the pics. "Hodson St" station is still in question. Anything from Merseyrail tends to be a wish-list rather than firm plans.

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    The 4th pic on your photobucket is way out of date. It was taken during the demolition of Fonney Oy in 1988/89.

    I'm not an expert on railways, but I can't see the point of an intermediate station on what was a Goods line.
    The Victoria and the Wapping tunnels were built to transport goods between Edge Hill and the Docks (North and South).
    What would an intermediate station be used for, and isn't it significant that there aren't any in the Wapping tunnel?

    i'm way out of contact but is the jist of the story / pics that it has taken 100 years plus to un-improve the place, if so i'm not surprised, stations we needed 100 years ago are useless as we now have cars, lorrys etc... they are nice to see in the regard of the way we used to live but also we used cut up squares of newspaper instead of toilet tissue, nice to remember but nobody's going back to it, maybe you could initiate a book /forum telling us how exactly it used to be, who went there and why coupled up with some more photos for old times sake,
