Shotton, on the North Wales coast line is low level, with the Wrexham - Wirral line being high level.

From a Chester - Holyhead cab ride video.

Philip you have caused me to get my Rail Atlas out, I had forgotten about it. I should have known about Galton Bridge. The Birmingham New Street towards Wolverhampton line crosses the Birmingham Moor Street towards Worcester line. I have traveled on this line to Stourbridge Junction to ride the Parry People Mover to Stourbridge Town. That is the farthest I can travel with my West Midland bus/rail pass.

Glad to be of service.

How nice to have free rail travel, even if it has limits.

These YouTube cab ride videos I watch are interesting, and it's given me a greater knowledge of the railways, particularly in the York - Leeds - Huddersfield - Manchester - Liverpool areas.

I just wish the cab drivers would put a second camera to show the operation of the controls in the cab. You see in many flying videos multiple viewpoints, the guys probably make a quick buck on monetized videos and do anything to bump up the view count (employing click bait in some instances).

The split-level stations at Minffordd in Wales are not only on different routes but they are also different gauges.
The upper station is on the narrow gauge Ffestiniog Railway between Porthmadog and Blaenau Ffestiniog line and the lower one is on the National Rail line between Barmouth and Pwllhelli.
