Map 1899 and map 2008

The station you have pointed to appears to have been called Town Station in 1899.

Heh, I began the article! A lot of the information was from the Railway Stations of Wirral book mentioned, there's not much in the periods you're after bar what's left of it now (the side retaining wall and the tunnel) but maybe if you're this way again there'll be something in the Wirral Museum or somewhere like that? One thing about the subbrit site I like is a photo of Monks' Ferry before it was flattened, shows the state of it quite well.

It's an Amtrak/Penn Central Metroliner train at New Haven, Connecticut on 3 September 1972.

This topic hasn't been touched for while, so I thought I'd add a few photo's that a mate of mine took in 1967 and maybe one in 1968.

As far as I know they haven't been shown anywhere public before, and he doesn't mind them being shared here. Hope they're of interest.

Cheers,
Billy. happy

Woodside closed awaiting demolition. Note the signal arms have been removed. This would be late '67 / early '68.
