The Cheshire lines Railway into Southport 1884 – 1952- a talk by Keith Hick

One of the very few railway companies to remain independent until Nationalisation in 1948
the Cheshire Lines Committee was centred upon North West England, principally around Liverpool and Manchester. The formation of lines to Godley in the east, Chester to the south and Southport to the north is explained with the Southport and Cheshire lines Extension Railway (S&CLER) giving direct access to the seaside resort of Southport from 1884.
