also features Huyton Junction to Ince Moss Junction line
This section covers locations between Edge Hill Station and Newton le Willows, as well as the line to St Helens Central via Prescot (on separate link). Since the completion of the electrification of the lines, sadly most open locations have now all but disappeared leaving mainly the various railway stations to photograph and view the passing trains. Currently most passenger trains are in the hands of the ex Thameslink Class 319 EMU's in now "Northern off White" livery, as well as the Class 323 and new Class 331 emu's. However, NorthernTrains 150/1, 150/2, and 156’s still occasionally operate on the line's with the Trans Pennine Express Class 185, Class 397, Class 802 multiple units and Class 68 loco hauled on an hourly service too. As for freight, you should see regulary GBRf Class 60 / 66’s on "Drax" Biomass trains with the occasional DB Cargo / Freightliner train too. There are further images on this line in my8A-Railflickr site, please take a look if you have a minute or two.
