Undergound Stations In Liverpool

I took these pictures so I would have a record of the underground stations, as they are at the present time.

They are all clean, modern stations, that can handle two Class 507/508 trains, working as a six-car.

The pictures give a good idea of the size of the tunnels, which are 4.70 metres in diameter.

Compare this to other underground railways.

  • Crossrail – 6.20 metres.
  • Victoria Line – 3.81 metres.
  • Northern City Line – 4.90 metres.
  • Waterloo and City Line – 3.89 metres.

I would think that like the Northern City Line in London, that they may have the problem that trains need to be specially built for the tunnels.

So would this rule out a train like an Aventra, which has been designed to work in the larger tunnels of Crossrail?
