photoblog image Birkdale Station......

Birkdale Station......


... is the first station south of Southport on Merseyrail's Northern line. Since getting my free Merseytravel pass last year this station has become my gateway to Liverpool, the Wirral and beyond. A ten minute drive down the coast road then park in the free car park and then travel onwards by train, an enlightening experience I have come to enjoy.

Composition is great and the colours are extra vivid. And nice to know about free parking, although I will probably not be able to use it smile
Les Auld: Possibly a bot far for you to drive Louis, thanks for the comment.
Excellent shot Les, and enjoy your travel pass before Gordon B.gets a change of mind.

Hmm ... my pass only give free bus travel and half price train fares within the county. I'm really envious and also it's a great image. Fabulous colours.
