To see all the Merseyrail pictures in one place, click www.flickriver.com/groups/389922@N20/pool/interesting. Best wishes and keep the pictures coming in, Simon.** Please check out the links at the bottom of this page to our two sister groups in Tokyo, Japan **
This group is for any pictures of the Merseyrail Railways system including shots of life in the communities along the line. Electric Merseyrail trains travel underground below the city of Liverpool as the "Wirral Line" which then runs under the River Mersey to destinations across the Wirral Peninsula, West Cheshire and parts of North Wales through connections at Bidston and Chester. A second electrified line is the "Northern Line" which runs from South Liverpool under the city centre to Kirkby, Ormskirk (Lancashire) and Southport. There are also various routes running overground from Liverpool Lime Street to Warrington, Widnes, St.Helens, Newton, Wigan and Preston which are known as the "City Line". These routes were not electrified but still come under the Merseyrail banner. In July 2009 the electrification of the Liverpool - Huyton - Newton - Manchester line was announced and this was completed in 2015. For details of this project and others in the North-West of England, see North West Sparks . For 2018 we anticipate the opening of the Halton Curve which will restore direct trains from Liverpool to Chester via Frodsham.
Any shots of life in the stations and streets, fields and coast near to the line, and of (or inside) the trains are welcome in this group. Please feel free to post and comment in any language, especially English, Japanese, French, Spanish, Italian or Dutch.

By the way, if you like suburban trains and pictures of "life along the line", please have a look at our sister groups with pictures of "life along the line" on two similar railway systems in Japan.
Seibu Railways of Tokyo and Saitama and
Tōkyū Railways of Tōkyō and Kanagawa
