    They are trying to get skelmersdale to liverpool re opened but this is seen as not necessary. So i dont think they will open a line to make a 20 second jurney. Coming from the other direction the rail bridge that crosses the existing line at just before junction doesnt exist acording to google.

    I don't know if this has been said before......With the olympics taking place next year will SL be playing through them or will it stop for the two weeks of the games.Will we be starting the season two weeks early to do this? If we do our first SL game at our fantastic new stadium could be 2 weeks earlier than we thought

    The line past the stadium went to St Helens Junction did it not! The line through Clock Face was from Widnes to Carr Mill junction not past the stadium. Skelmersdale is on the Wigan Kirkby line but there is no station at Skem so they might be trying to get one built even though it is nowhere near the centre of Skem.

    Although you've probably steamed the buggers, I disagree. The St Helens - Runcorn Gap line is the one that goes past the New Stadium - past Sutton Oak, Junction, Clock Face and beyond to Widnes

    Regarding Clock Face being redeveloped, so what? The only part of the line that could serve any function if re-opened is the section from Town to Junction. Beyond Clock Face, most of the old lines in Widnes are now roads.

    I bow to your superior knowledge obviously the connections on the freight only Widnes to Wigan joining Shaw St to Wigan line at Carr Mill junction was what I remember in the 80's (1980's that is).

    IIRC only Gloucester, Leicester and Northampton play in their own stadia,

    Bath's could technically be called their own but I'm sure its owned by the council

    The (W) Rec is owned by the people of Bath.

    Exeter's is brand new built specially for their Premiership ambitions.

    And Worcester have their own stadium, slap bang next to the M5 - looks like it was modern in 1975.

    Could have sworn they were promoted - or doesn't that count until the first day of the new season?

    I can only presume within a few years they'll be smaller. It's just an issue because they need two lenses

    One photo says "The site of the big screen". So it appears that the screen will be in the corner between the North and East stands. So the scoreboard must be in the other corner (North/West).

    Another potentially dumb question - but big screen wise, is that going to be a permanent fixture or will it be similar to how it used to be at KR where it was erected as and when required.
