Posted by Robert Hampton on 13th February 2010 at 6:41 pm

Just released from Ian Allan Publishing is the excellent new book, Merseyside Electrics, by Jonathan Cadwallader and Martin Jenkins, now available to buy from our shop page.

Merseyside Electrics book

This 80-page photographic album documents the rich heritage of the routes of the Mersey Railway, the Lancashire & Yorkshire and London & North Western Railway which make up the current electrified railway network around Liverpool and Merseyside. Every angle is covered, with scenes of rolling stock, depots, yards, tunnels, stations, signal boxes as well as passengers. Each picture is accompanied by a detailed caption and the accompanying text has been painstakingly researched.

Two photographs of “our” 502 are included — one showing it in service on the Crossens branch, and the second of a run in preservation in 1986.

This book is highly recommended for anyone interested in any part of Merseyside’s railway history. You can buy it online from Amazon via our shop page, where a percentage of the purchase price will go towards group funds.
