One of the new Class 177 Merseyrail trains will be visiting Southport after it visited Birkenhead North station during September and proved to be incredibly popular with hundreds of people stepping on board to experience the train for themselves.
Passengers in Southport will now have the chance to take a look at the new trains with an event taking place later this month.
The new trains come with a wide range of customer-based features which include innovative sliding step technology, which brings step-free access for all, dedicated bike storage, extra space for wheelchairs, prams and luggage plus onboard wi-fi. The new trains have been built by train manufacturer Stadler for the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority.
During the event, the train will be available to visit from a fully accessible platform with staff on hand to answer questions and talk through the features the new trains will bring.
Southport railway station has no parking available at the station with those visiting advised to use public transport to get to and from the station.
Details of the event:
Date: Saturday the 23rd of October
Time: 10am to 2pm
