Dan. I appreciated the posting on the Overhead Railway. This distinctive, elevated electric railway was so important and timely to the docks and surrounding communities. We can only imagine what an updated version would offer to Liverpool. One of my favourite memories is being taken for a ride on the trams then the Overhead by my Da (a rigger in the docks) aged 4 in 1956.We went from the underground Dingle station to Seaforth. The crowded carriages, evocative clatter, electric whine and views of the docks have remained with me. I recall asking why the docks were known as the 'Liverpool' docks when most of them were definitely in Bootle. My Da offered people's lack of education or carelessness with expression! Sadly, the Overhead closed weeks after my ride and trams were replaced by buses. I have been lucky enough to ride and work on electrified, elevated railtracks around the World but none left as magical an impression on me as the Overhead. My second favourite railtrack, the spectacular Sydney Monorail, opened in 1988 but closed in 2013, being mainly used by tourists. Ah well, I still dream of these railtracks, along with my Hornby 000 electric train, the 'Dutchess of Montrose'. I confess to still having the transformer. Walshy (A mongrel engineer).
