    I've been there many times. It is easy to bring back into use and regenerate the Dingle area. A gantry from the Dingle tunnel at Herculaneum down to the track beneath. The station and tunnel is all there. What would be the cost of boring that station and tunnel these days? It is a no brainer, the station should be brought back into use ASAP.

    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?

    I wonder if they still store the old cars down there? Last time I went there was a Mk1 Escort, Hillman Imp and a mk2 Escort body!

    Default Dingle Underground station

    Not many pics in here, as it was completely pitch black, except for Alans trusty torch from Homebase!!

    But it was such a fantastic experience, and the owner of the garage, is a lovely bloke who brought out the Dockers Umbrella book to show us all the old pics.
    It is also reportedly haunted down there, after about 8 people were trapped down there (i forget the date) and died in the fire...
