Merseyrail – The winter and snow of 1994

A snowy shot of Maghull Station with an Ormskirk bound train approaching from 2010 – not related to the video

Remember the snow of February 1994? Well you can relive it via this You Tube video of Merseyrail’s Northern Line to Southport during that bad weather – see link below:-

The video starts of at Chester but soon goes on to Southport after about 1m 30sec’s.

Freshfield & Waterloo Stations in the 1970’s

Here are a couple of shots of these two stations back some 40 odd years ago.

The old former Merseyrail Class 502 EMU’s were still running the services back then and until their withdrawal after 1977.

Waterloo Station looks in need of some loving care back then and it is very different now.

I purchased the prints (and then scanned them) from the Friends of the 502 Group recently.

The photos are amongst the shots on my Flickr site at:-
