datum Chester General Station (179m14c)
15m23c Daresbury BJ020
17m12c Walton Old Junction NW534 NW535 NW536
1896 OS map shows section from Daresbury (Junction) to MSC retained as 'refuge siding'; and a similar siding north of the canal that became the LNWR connection to the MSC Railway. Also shows this joint line continuing towards Arpley. Cobb does not show this alignment, probably in error as it should have been shown.
