Maghull Station August 1949

I recently purchased a copy of this cracking black & white photograph*

It shows a 2-4-2T steam locomotive No.10655 at Maghull Station on 22nd August 1949. It really is a very nice shot and it’s one I’ve previously not seen of the station.

In many ways Maghull Station remains substantially unchanged, with the original footbridge and station buildings still being in place, as these far more recent shots illustrate:-

Maghull – Steam train powers through its station – 1967

Remember for former Liverpool – Glasgow trains from Exchange Station powering through Maghull on their way to Scotland via Ormskirk and Preston? Here’s a link to a video of one from 1967*, not long before they ceased to run:-

Merseyrail Class 508 EMU at Maghull Station

*The video title indicates 1950’s but you can hear from the commentary on this short video (and see from the livery on the coaches) that the year is 1967
