Photos of the former station are on You Tube – see link above.

Note – There’s a small issue on the video that requires explanation. Liverpool’s Exchange Station was not directly closed as part of the Beeching cuts, it went as part of the building of the Loop and Link underground section of the Merseyrail system, being replaced by Moorfields underground station near by. It did, however, lose it’s direct services to Scotland and the north which were transferred to Lime Street Station as a consequence of the Beeching cuts.
