grid) have all had their working enhanced so that the contained pictures
and movies can be more easily accessed in a ‘gallery’ manner. For

of the new 4-coach train sets which will replace the current 3-coach train sets
(which are almost 40 years-old). These will be deployed in 2020 but test
running of one train is expected to start in June 2019. An excellent
description of their improved features is given in http://www.merseytravel.gov.uk/about-us/Pages/New-Trains-For-Merseyrail.aspx
Also see New
Train Prototype to see a movie and photos of a prototype of one car of a
new train set, taken when it was exhibited at the Pacific Road Sheds in
Birkenhead in autumn 2018.
Work continues on
re-adjusting platform levels on all Wirral and Northern Lines stations. This,
together with extendible door steps on the new trains, will permit level access
from platform to train, thus making it easier for older people to embark and
disembark and rendering the use of ramps for wheelchairs no longer necessary.
The work is being done in phases along the lines and will require groups of
stations to be temporarily closed and replacement bus services to be run. A
description of the changes and table of the bus replacement schedules is
available on the website https://www.merseyrail.org/platform-upgrade-works.aspx
and is available as a brochure at Merseyrail stations.
