Class 503 M28675M at Duke Street Wharf, Birkenhead Docks.0 viewsClass 503 'Wirral & Mersey' EMU car M28675M looks worse for wear awaiting scrapping in the sidings at Duke Street Wharf on Birkenhead Docks on a warm and sunny July 9th 1984. M28675M was one of the original LMS cars, built by Metro-Cammell in 1938. Visible in the distance are more class 503s all awaiting the call. Just visible alongside is fellow class 503, M29275M a DTOS also dating from 1938 but built by BRCW. It looks as though it has not been long here, as the windows appear to be mostly intact!

507014 departs from Rock Ferry.0 viewsHaving called at Rock Ferry, 507014 gets underway with a Liverpool Central to Elllesmere Port service on April 26th 2014. The track on the left is the mothballed connection to the former MD&HB system on Birkenhead Docks. The track north of Rock Ferry is heavily overgrown. It is hard to imagine now how busy this LMS/GWR joint line must have been in the past, with freight to and from the docks, plus passenger services from the terminus at Birkenhead Woodside that once had through workings to London PaddingtonApr 28, 2014
