taken 8 years ago, near to Liverpool, Great Britain

The lost chord is re-opened
The lost chord is re-opened
Known as the Olive Mount Chord, the short stretch of track from here to just beyond the far portal has just been reinstated at a cost of 7.6m. It enables freight trains going to and from Seaforth and Bootle Docks to access the Liverpool - Manchester line directly, instead of spending 40 minutes shunting round at Edge Hill, where they had to cross busy passenger lines. As seen from the 12.01 from Newton-le-Willows.
