Merseyrail Electric


    Serving a diverse and famous part of north-west England, this is a detailed look at this busy and oft-ignored suburban railway network that has become a Merseyside institution. The self-contained electrified network has 75 route miles, serving the County of Merseyside, the Wirral, West Lancashire and parts of Cheshire, providing safe and efficient transportation for over 100,000 passengers daily. The system operates some of the oldest trains in daily use on the UK mainland network, yet is one of the best performing operators in the country consistently achieving high passenger satisfaction figures. With scenes from the network past and present, a photographic journey is undertaken illustrating not only the changes to the rolling stock, but also showing the infrastructure and the varied landscape that provides a backdrop to the frequent, well-patronised services. Complete with a history of how the network has developed from the early 1970s, with colour illustrations throughout, includes a route map and current fleet list.
