Restoration of the London Midland & Scottish railways Southport line electric train, (known as a class 502 EMU) is underway at Tebay. Lets hope that it can be returned to Merseyside, & possibly run trips on its old route some day. The group restoring the train are planing a transport rally on October 29 with visiting vehicles & a chance to see how the restoration is progressing. http://www.southportvisiter.co.uk/southport-news/southport-southport-news/2011/05/19/team-aim-to-restore-502-train-steeped-in-southport-history-101022-28718689/
