Stadler wins Merseytravel train deal

Liverpool City Region leaders have agreed a £460 million scheme for new trains.

The state-of-the-art trains that will come into service by the end of 2020 will replace the near 40-year-old fleet that currently runs on the network – the oldest in the UK.

The trains will be built and maintained by Swiss manufacturer, Stadler, subject to a final legal process and the signing of the contracts in the New Year.
