    Cool LYR marker

    not sure what to put this under really.

    we have a couple of railway bridges around the corner and this marker is next to the huge brick arch one

    assuming it to be Lancashire Yorkshire Railway.

    ah sorry, bottom of Akenside St/Hornby Boulevard/Violet Rd junction Bootle
    I'll take some pics of the bridges and one showing the marker and it's proximity to the bridge.

    as promised the railway bridges

    Akenside St looking towards Violet Rd



    junction of Hornby Blvd and Violet Rd looking back up Akenside.
    the marker is next to the box under the shrubbery







    just along the path at the side of the railway are remants of I think a signal box

    view towards the bridges from Seaforth station

    great pics,


    dont think the rubble was a signal box, but the old line which has been demolished from north mersey branch junction to North mersey goods and the Overhead railway,

    the signal box and the line mentioned can be seen in this pic,

    once the bridge was demolished, it revealed the other line behind it, the one in your pic from seaforth and litherland station

    just to add, if the rubble is were the red arrow is, itll be the remains of the old line, demolished in the 70s


    another pic here

    also, the southport-liverpool bridge that has been removed when the line was reduced from 4 lines to 2 is interesting the way theyve cut it with an acetalene torch and left a bit in, usually they just knock the bricks away and lift it out.
