Southport Lord Street Station – Cheshire Lines

www.disused-stations.org.uk/s/southport_lord_street/index.shtml

I have recently posted about Aintree Central Station (02/12/13) together with Sefton & Maghull (22/11/13) and Lydiate (28/11/13) Stations. Aintree was the starting point for the long gone Cheshire Lines Extension Railway to Southport. Here, via the link above, we have the holiday town destination of Southport Lord Street Station.

This fascinating site has some good photos and accurate historical facts.

We will have a look at the other stations between Lydiate and Southport in a future posting.

The above site has a fascinating review and quite a number of photos of the old Cheshire Lines Aintree Central Station which was side by side with the present day former Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Aintree Station.

Aintree was the start of the Cheshire Lines Extension Railway through to Southport.
