I was interested to see the story in the Echo about a new station to serve the Baltic Triangle that sounds like it's going to happen - always good to hear about new rail infrastructure.

I'm not convinced (like many I think) that Bramley Moore is going to happen - but if it does I assume Sandhills would be close enough or is there talk / plans for any new investment up there too?

^ nice one. Some great pictures on that site. I must have travelled through and over it thousands of times and never knew it was there.

It would be good for the local location if the station was reopened, but there seems a lot of if's, but's, and maybe's, and no end dates in the Echo article.

It's like they're floating it out there to get opinions, with no concrete plans or timescale.


They've been floating the idea of this station reopening for over a decade or more.  And it's still just talk.

St James station is in Merseyrail's long term analysis. Not sure about BMD, but there's long been talk of a new Vauxhall station. That would come before Sandhills.

I see Walkers Crisps and Linekar inadvertently used Purple Ackie's likeness in a CL final promo video?  Only just seen this on the Metro website, is it old news?

Finally news on funding approval for two new train stations on Merseyside - St James Place at the Baltic Triangle and Headbolt Lane in Kirkby, which could open the way for a rail link to Skelmersdale.
