Glossary Results for Word "Edge Hill, Liverpool"
|Edge Hill, Liverpool||Edge Hill is about one and a half miles east of Liverpool Lime Street passenger station. On the opening of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway, the main importance of Edge Hill was as the site of the engine houses for the stationary engines which worked trains into and out of Crown Street, and later Lime Street, stations. Under the LNWR it became the centre of a massive complex, including a passenger station, main goods yards and locomotive shed for Liverpool, and junctions which gave access to Liverpool’s docks; to Lime Street station; and to Riverside station. The “Grid Irons” at Edge Hill were an early example of shunting by gravity.|
