We arrived in Earlestown by train from Liverpool Lime Street. Earlestown train station was built at the point of intersection of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway, opened in 1830, and the Warrington and Newton Railway, which opened in 1831- these two early railways, incidentally forming the first steam railway junction. This junction gives the station its unusual triangular triangular junction with platforms on all 3 sides! Its best to check at the ticket office which side your train goes from before heading to the platforms - quite often the timetable notices have a sub number on the train times, indicating which platform too. There are also frequent services from, Manchester (Victoria and Piccadilly), Warrington (Bank Quay), Chester and then to North Wales.
