The Changing Liverpool Steam Packet Terminal

Photographs  John H. Luxton 2008

A look at the changing terminal facilities for the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company at Liverpool. During the week of November 17 the previous terminal site was completely cleared leaving only the footings for the previous portacabins which formed the terminal buildings. Though a baggage tractor and some trailers remained on the site. Several new notices have appeared advising intending passengers to telephone or use the company's web site for bookings as there are no administration facilities available at present. Notices have also appeared advising passengers that transfer coaches will depart on Saturdays at 12:30 (to Twelve Quays) for the BEN-MY-CHREE weekend sailings operated from Birkenhead.

However, looking at the available vehicle marshalling space, given that the old site is soon to be built on one must wonder just how up to 200 vehicles can be marshalled for embarkation on the MANANNAN when she enters service in 2009.
