The Cheshire Lines

Talk by Keith Hick
The Cheshire Lines was a joint operation of the Great Central Railway, the Midland Railway and the Great Northern Railway
The line was built to mainline standards with a grandiose terminus at Southport Lord St and wayside stations at Birkdale Palace, Seaside (later Ainsdale Beach), Woodville and Ainsdale (later Woodvale), Barton and Halsall (later Mossbridge), Altcar and Hillhouse, Lydiate and Sefton (later Sefton and Maghull). The line closed in 1952
