Merseyrail is the train transport network used in the Merseyside area of England, this covers the Wirral peninsula and Liverpool and its various districts.
Over the past 5 years or so Merseyrail has undergone massive changes, all of which, as far as i can see, have resulted in an improved service.
In days gone past train often turned up late, if at all, and when you got on the train information systems were unreliable and very sparse.
Nowadays trains almost always arrive and depart the various stations on time, and onboard the trains, information systems tell you the destination of the train you have boarded, the name of the next station to be called at on the journey, as well as telling you when you are approaching the next station and whether or not you need to get off and change for another service should you require to do so.
As well as improvements on the trains, the stations themselves have undergone huge improvements in car parking spaces, toilet facilities, information systems and general cleanliness, well done Merseyrail!
Summary: Impressive transport system
