Liverpool Overhead Railway, Seaforth Sands
Liverpool Overhead Railway, Seaforth Sands
A southbound electric train of the Liverpool Overhead Railway approaches Seaforth Sands station in May 1951. This very useful line ran the whole length of the Liverpool Docks from Seaforth to Dingle, providing a regular and popular service. But in the mid-1950s, the Liverpool City Council seemed to fall prey to some kind of collective idiocy, when they not only closed and dismantled the Overhead Railway, but also abandoned what was probably England's finest tramway system, stretching many miles into the suburbs on car-free grass tracks.
