Information

Liverpool’s Lime Street Station is the city centre’s main railway station and comprises Network Rail’s nine-platform mainline terminus together with Merseyrail’s single-platform underground station. It thus provides a connection between a branch of the West Coast Main Line and Merseyrail’s Wirral Line.

The underground station is one of six in Merseyrail’s network and was opened in 1977 on the completion of the new single-track Loop Line tunnel under the city centre. The latter links to the Mersey Railway Tunnel, which opened in 1886 to provide a rail link between Liverpool and Birkenhead under the River Mersey.
