LIVERPOOL & MANCHESTER RAILWAY
| ||Join us for this unique journey along one of the world's first Mainline railways, with an ex LMS Jubilee Class Locomotive.|
from Liverpool Lime Street, we tackle the steep climb through the
incredible deep rock cutting to Edge Hill, before continuing along route
of the orignal Liverpool to Manchester Railway, the world's first
mainline constructed in the 1830s. On a beautiful spring morning we pass
many significant landmarks along the route including the site of the
famous Rainhill Trials, involving Stephenson Rocket. We continue at
speed along Chat Moss, under the West Coast Mainline, and into
Manchester Victoria Station, while looking in depth about the history
and significance of this railway.
With live sound recorded from
the locomotive, we bring the action right to you. This program also
features commentary titles & locations, along with lineside shots
& footplate footage
