Hamilton Square Railway Station, Birkenhead
Hamilton Square Railway Station, Birkenhead
The main railway station in Birkenhead - part of the Birkenhead-Liverpool underground loop line 'Merseyrail'. The Mersey rail tunnel was built in 1886. Later on, passenger numbers declined due to the pollution from the steam engines. In 1903, this was the first railway in Britain to convert from steam to electric, ensuring its success.
In recent years, it acquired fame due to a family of peregrine falcons nesting on a parapet.
