Gradient Profile of the original Liverpool to Manchester Route

Resource Type: Image | Posted on 13th February 2012 by Liam Physick

One of the images donated to Metal by Ray Physick. This one shows the gradient profile of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway. Note the steep increases in the Wapping Tunnel and the Whiston Plane, followed by a sharp decrease on the Sutton Plane. There is then a steadier decline to Bury Lane, followed by a steady rise until the end of the line. Bury Lane was one of the original stations on the Liverpool and Manchester Railway, and by the end of the nineteenth century it had become a two-platform station, with staggered platforms and wooden booking and waiting facilities. It was renamed Glazebury and Bury Lane in July 1878, and closed on 7th July 1958
