Friends of the 502 Group

Last weekend, as I posted about a few days ago, Jen and I went to have a look at the work being carried out by this group of volunteers who are trying to rebuild a desperately neglected Class 502 EMU which used to run on the Merseyrail network until it and its fellow class mates started to be displaced from the late 1970’s by the present Class 507/8 EMU’s

The restoration work required is massive as I think these two photos show:-

And for those with memories of the interior of the 502 EMU’s how about this nostalgia shot:-
