Merseytravel intend that St James railway station will be reopened as part of the Liverpool City Region transport plan.[7]

Future[edit]

St James railway station, which has been closed for a century, may reopen because of the important Baltic Triangle development in Toxteth. If opened, the station will be on the Merseyrail Northern Line between Liverpool Central and Brunswick railway station
