In which English city is Lime Street a major railway terminus?
Lime Street is a railway terminus station in the city centre of Liverpool. It opened in August 1836 and is now the oldest operating grand terminus mainline station in the world. The station was originally served by the Liverpool and Manchester Railway but is now a terminus of the London, Midland and Scottish Railway. It is also used by the East Midlands Railway, the TransPennine Express, the London Northwestern Railway, Northern Trains, Avanti West Coast and Transport for Wales.
Liverpool Lime Street is divided into two sections: a mainline station and an underground station. The latter opened in 1977.
The station was originally designed by the architects Arthur Holme, John Cunningham, and John Foster. The building was remodelled several times, with major improvements made for the millennium (2000).
Liverpool is a city in the northwest of England. It is the fifth-largest metropolitan area in the UK. As well as a mainline railway station, Liverpool has an airport known as the John Lennon Airport after a member of the band The Beatles who lived in the area.
