    Default A new home for historic Merseyside train

    The 1940's vintage electric train that once ran from Liverpool Exchange to Southport & Ormskirk, has found a new home. On the weekend of sat 3 sun 4 March the train was moved from its former site in Tebay Cumbria, to its new undercover home at Burscough. The train, a "class 502" is now housed alongside the Merseyside Transport Trusts collection of vintage Merseyside buses. Work can now begin to restore this unique & historic part of Merseysides railway heritage. It is hoped that once its restored it will operate special services on the Merseyrail network.
