At one point the Mersey Docks and Harbour Company railway totalled 104 miles of line, with connections to many other railways. A section of the line ran, unsegregated from other road traffic, along the dock road. Today only the Canada Dock Branch is used.

It also operated large quarries at Creetown, Scotland.
