    running from Edge Hill to Byrom Street.
    Theres 5 air shafts, 4 Vertical (one capped) and 1 Horizontal.

    running from Fontenoy Street to Liverpool docks.
    Theres no air shafts.
    Theres a 100 metre cutting (retaining walls) betweeen the 2 tunnels, with an arch bridge across the middle.

    If I'm ever in Liverpool I'm looking that one up for sure :) I really like that.
    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?
