Maghull – Volunteers make Station look special but have you seen the weeds on the line?

A walk across the level crossing at Maghull Station recently brought this into sight:-

Network Rail have weed spraying trains that travel the rails of the UK dealing with the unwanted growth between and at the side of the rails and it looks like the Liverpool – Ormskirk Northern Line of Merseytrail must be due a visit.

Beautiful award winning flower displays at Maghull Station by Maghull Station Volunteers.

Considering the work Maghull Station Volunteers do to make Maghull an award winning station a little weed spraying by Network Rail would not go amiss me thinks.

The first photo is also amongst my Flickr shots at:-

Some nice shots via the two links above from the Liverpool Echo and the Flickr site of George C1.

I used to go to this show every year but have not been for 2 or 3 years. The weather was great for it yesterday and it looks set for another nice day today.

Here’s a link to a shot I took at the 2006 Southport Airshow:-

This show draws thousands of folk to the North West’s best seaside resort and the vast expanse of sand is perfect for such an event. Now if only the rail links east and north from/to Southport were better people would be able to get to the Town more easily! Oops, on soap box again!!
