I think i am correct in saying that a group of people tried to buy the track bed from B.R so they could keep the track open, i also know that at least one individual also tried to but the track bed from Neston to Parkgate, and also some of the fixtures and fittings from the station at Parkgate, i think in all cases the B.R board said no, which 60 years later seems very sad !.

Anyone know about any of the attempts ?.

I think somebody put the idea forward to buy the track but it didn't get off the rails.

Oh b*gg*r, that sounds like a joke but it was meant to be serious.

In ref to the photo of Neston South station after closure, i would estimate the picture was taken around 1967-69.As you can see the trackbed has been filled vertualy to platform level, mellock lane road overbridge is behind the photographer, beyond the bridge is neston rock cutting which i believe at that time was infilled with rubbish which was dug out when the wirral footpath was formed, the bridge under mellock lane was also demolished and the site leveled for housing.This is a very intersting photo, i do not think there are many of the line after closure. i have been researching this line for many years if anyone needs any info please drop me a line.

I have seen only seen one picture of the line after closure that i can think of, taken between the bridge in bridge street and the church lane one in about 1963-65 ish i would think as the track is still there, it was not taken of the railway realy a bit just happend to be in the picture. Sadly i can't remember at the moment who has the picture, i will have to have a think !.

Just seen your post mentioning Sam Jellicoe, was he (and you) any relation of jack Jellicoe who served on the battleship "Warspite" during the first world war ?, i think i am right in saying he was at the battle of jutland !.
