What’s on in Merseyside 1980 - March

Resource Type: Image | Posted on 18th November 2011 by Liam Physick

This page from the What’s on in Merseyside 1980 leaflet lists the events in the first half of March. It reveals that throughout the month the Rainhill Trials Exhbition will be on show at Rainhill station, commemorating both the Rainhill Trials and the opening of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway. It includes models of the locomotives at the Trials, relics of the originals and a working replica of the Rocket (perhaps the same one that would be steamed two months later in the re-enactment of the Rainhill Trials)
