Scousers having a chuckle about a couple of things despite Lime St being closed.

Other versions are available.   Fratton and Manors that I've heard of, there must be a few others...

Indeed but I suspect it started with Edge Hill, particularly given how the locals are having a laugh about this.   I led a pretty sheltered early life in Surrey and never heard anything similar about Vauxhall or Battersea Park.........

I gather in Scotland getting off at Haymarket has the same meaning.  I think the meaning makes more sense when there is a tunnel between the point of alighting and , er, the final destination.

Hmm.  I'm now not sure whether this particular topic should be in 'The Wider Picture' or 'The Lighter Side'.  Tongue

William Huskisson MP was the first person to be killed by a train while crossing the tracks, in 1830.  Many more have died in the same way since then.  Don't take a chance: stop, look, listen.

"Level crossings are safe, unless they are used in an unsafe manner."  Discuss.

Initial blame has fallen on the owner of land at the top of the embankment, for illegally storing a large number of shipping containers there.
