It all started here!
Liverpool Road Station is one of the most important railway stations in Britain. Manchester can be said to have been the place where the Railway Age began. It was the service that ran from here which demonstrated the feasibility of rail as a public transport system. Opened in September 1830, it marked the terminus of the line which ran from Liverpool to Manchester. It is now part of the Museum of Science and Industry.
