Mini museum opens at Liverpool Lime Street

Old railway artefacts have been put on display in a newly opened ‘mini museum’ at Liverpool Lime Street station.

Items in the collection include:

  • Avery Auto-precision luggage scales from the early 20th century;
  • A London, Midland and Scotland (LMS) railway company trolley from when LMS operated services between 1923-1947;
  • And original miniature power lever frame equipment from the Liverpool Lime Street signal box, which opened in January 1948. Lime Street signal box closed and signalling control moved to Manchester Rail Operating Centre in July 2018.

The artefacts “pay homage to Lime Street’s past” according to station manager Paul Spiers, who stressed the importance of remembering the railway’s rich heritage.

The opening follows the completion of the station’s £140 million redevelopment.
