Notice of Royal Trains

Resource Type: Image | Posted on 11th November 2011 by Liam Physick

This notice was issued by the London Midland Region of British Railways in 1951 to give notice to its staff of three royal trains, presumably for the Festival of Britain. The three services mentioned are from London Euston to Lowton, Lowton to Manchester Victoria and Manchester Victoria to Liverpool Riverside. There were two stations in the Manchester area called Lowton: Lowton (formerly on the London and North Western Railway) and Lowton St. Mary’s (formerly on the Great Central Railway, renamed following nationalisation). Presumably the latter is referred to, since the former closed down in 1949, and also Lowton St. Mary’s (which closed to passengers in 1964 and completely in 1968) was a junction station
