Following the introduction of the new Class 777 trains on to the Merseyrail network, further temporary timetable changes are being made to the West Kirby and New Brighton lines to assist with the phased roll out of the ground-breaking new fleet of trains.

Suzanne Grant, Commercial Director at Merseyrail, said:

“Our driver training programme is moving across to the Wirral line as we head towards the next exciting phase of the roll out of the new trains.

“This does require a small number of temporary cancellations on the West Kirby and New Brighton lines while this happens.

“We apologise for any inconvenience that this will cause passengers and look forward to our Wirral line passengers experiencing the ground-breaking new trains as soon as possible.”
