Chester / Ellesmere Port / West Kirkby / New Brighton to Liverpool Loop Line
Merseyrail, is a self contained 750dc third rail system covering most of Merseyside and a little beyond too. The system is split up into two sections and radiate from Liverpool City Centre , one being Wirral Line which covers lines to Chester, Ellesmere Port, West Kirby and New Brighton. The other is the Northern Line which covers the lines to Southport, Ormskirk, Kirkby and Hunts Cross which is covered in a seperate section. The trains are currently in the hands of EMU Class 507 and 508’s in the yellow and silver Merseyrail livery but in 2022(?) and onwards, these will be replaced by the new Class 777 Stadler electric multiple units.

This section will be continuely updated with more images as and when they become available, so hopefully it will provide a general idea of reasonable locations to observe and / or photograph various locations and the EMU’s.
There are further images on this line in my8A-Railflickr site, please take a look if you have a minute or two.
