New Metro trains delayed

Further testing of Class 555s needed

Changing times: Class 508 at the buffer stops at Southport on 29 October 2023 during the ‘508 Sunset’ farewell tour organised by the Branch Line Society, which raised £12,000 for local charities. The ‘508s’ will be stood down by the end of the year, with their sister ‘507s’ to follow in 2024, replaced by Stadler Class 777s, for which the platform extension work visible in this shot is taking place.
