Another visitor! Stay a while… stay forever!

Sitting at the railway station, got a ticket to my destination…

The Government has released a new list ranking train stations, and look at the results:-

1. Manchester Victoria

9. Liverpool Central

Yet again Liverpool trails behind its fellow city. Manchester gets everything, we’re left behind…

Oh wait, this is a survey of the worst stations in the country. I can’t really argue with Central‘s placement on the list: when you’re forced to push your way past throngs of people on a platform that’s just too narrow, it’s the worst possible advert for Merseyrail that there could be.

The amazingly-named Lord Adonis is on a whistle-stop tour of the top ten today, visiting Liverpool Central to open the new MtoGo shop there. This being the era of Web 2.0 and all that, he is blogging about his day on the Department for Transport web site. I look forward to reading his thoughts.

The good news is that the Government has committed to upgrade the worst stations, which is ironic in the case of Liverpool Central, as Merseytravel have already tried for several years to get funding and have been knocked back.
