Lost Lines

John Woodman

The railway map of the northwest of England looked a lot different a hundred years (and less) from today's lacklustre network. The well intended lobbying of varied groups and interests to strengthen the economic and social well being of diverse communities, large and small throughout Lancashire and its neighbouring regions has a long way to go to recapture the intense rail bound services fondly remembered from the last century.

This is a taste of what has been lost through successive government cuts not to mention the infamous labours of a certain Home Counties beancounter. The railway map refers to 1933.
