First Time!

Yesterday, amongst the train service disruption notices I spotted this:

Overhead wire problems are causing disruption at Eccles. 
Because of this, trains between Manchester and Liverpool Lime Street / Warrington Bank Quay via Earlestown may be delayed by up to 40 minutes. These delays will continue until further notice. 
Oh dear.  It didn't take long to go pear shaped did it!

Eccleston Park Works

A reader kindly provided these pictures of work at Eccleston Park, taken last year.  Thanks, Dave.

 Two shots of the raising of the bridge.

The remains of the old up platform can be seen beyond the end of the current one.

(Up is towards Wigan.)
