Photographs[edit]

The present photograph shows the 1831 carriage shed. Can someone add a photo of the actual station building frontage on Liverpool Road?--Train guard (talk) 17:00, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

Article name[edit]

I've moved this from Liverpool Road railway station (Manchester) to Manchester Liverpool Road railway station for two main reasons: (i) because that's the name given by Butt, p.153; (ii) the L&M are more likely to have included the name of the city in the name of the station, ie "Manchester (Liverpool Road)", with or without parenthesis. Plain "Liverpool Road" is highly unlikely. To be fair, they're most likely to have referred to the station as plain "Manchester", but that's too ambiguous for Wikipedia purposes. --Redrose64 (talk) 21:39, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

Mainline Link Severance (Ordsall Chord)[edit]
