Liverpool was disconnected from the Cross Country network in 2003. Before then, when Virgin ran the franchise, there were Cross Country trains from Liverpool to Plymouth, Poole, Portsmouth, Edinburgh and London Paddington. There was mention in the aborted consultation that Liverpool could once again be served. There was also an article in the local press about new Cross Country services “coming soon” but that was back in 2018. Does anyone know (without speculating) whether the return of Cross a Country services to Liverpool is on the cards?
