LIVERPOOL CROSBY AND SOUTHPORT RAILWAY

DESCRIPTION + /

The Liverpool, Crosby and Southport Railway opened in 1847. It was only completed in 1847 between Southport and a temporary terminus at Waterloo, omnibuses being used to complete the 5 miles to central Liverpool. Nearly a year passed before connection was made with a jointly owned line at Bootle Lane. The first passenger train to run between Southport and Liverpool Exchange Station ran in October 1850. The company was absorbed by the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Company in 1855.
