Merseyrail – A cab ride from Hunts Cross to Southport

A Liverpool bound 507 EMU approaching the Crescent Road level crossing in Birkdale, Southport.

This Merseyrail cab ride from Liverpool (Hunts Cross) to Southport (shot on a rainy day) was filmed in 1990. It will of course be of interest to rail enthusiasts but also to those with an eye towards local history. It may only be 19 years ago but things change all the time. Enjoy via the link below:-

Goodness me the use of guns on Merseyside becomes a bigger concern each week that goes by. This may have been ‘just’ an air rifle incident but sadly it fits into a much wider picture of gun use locally.
