Former Railway, Liverpool Street, Salford. (c) Google 2011. View Larger Map.
The Railway was rebuilt in 1963 in estate pub-style and remains today on the corner of Oldfield Road and the start of Liverpool Street. Sadly, it's as a printers rather than a pub. The original Railway was built in 1855 and towards the end of the century, Walkers & Homfray expanded the pub by incorporating three Liverpool Street houses and one on Clare Street to the rear .

When Wilsons Brewery took the Railway in the 1960s, they decided to demolish it and build a new boozer on the same site. A swap deal saw Greenall Whitley take the pub in 1980 and then the Railway was a John Smiths house by 1993. A closure and brief reopening preceded the pub shutting its doors for good in 1996 .
