RAIL STATION CELEBRATES 70 YEARS.

TRANSPORT chiefs marked a milestone for one of the region's rail stations.

West Allerton station is celebrating its 70th anniversary and transport authority Merseytravel installed a display showing the station's history.

Merseytravel chair Cllr Mark Dowd said: "We are really pleased that local people and users of the station have taken such an active part in celebrating with us."

Merseytravel's rail services committee chairman, Cllr Chris Blakeley, said: "The display celebrates the rich history of the station and the contribution it has made to the area over the past 70 years."

The station was opened by the London Midland Scottish Railway Company on January 2, 1939, to serve new housing.
