    Default Dock Rail Link

    The proposed rail link, linking Liverpool Docks directly to the west coast mainline has been given the go-ahead. This is great news for Liverpool's economy.

    I really don't know. I was trying to think about it earlier, but I couldn't think of any obvious route. Anyone else know?

    The trains from the docks had to reverse at Edge Hill to get onto the main lines. They had to lay 500 metres of track to make the link seamless. That may be it.

    Yes, 500 metres of track put the container terminal at a disadvantage.

    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?
