Lime Street Re-opens

Lime Street re-opened this morning after eight weeks of work, so I took a quick look round.

Platform 1 has track, but is closed off by barriers - It is scheduled to open in October.  On the left, the old platform 1 stands trackless:
Further up, the far end of platforms 1 and 2 also awaits completion:
On the concourse, Virgin's First Class Lounge has gained a frontage, although a lot of work remains to be done:

And what of the train service, I hear you ask?  Writing at 4pm I note that at Huyton we have had eleven cancellations and twelve trains more than fifteen minutes late.  I suspect most of these are due to Northern's continuing crew problems, rather than being the fault of the new signalling.
