Derby-built Class 115 4-car suburban sets are usually associated with Marylebone services, but some were allocated to Allerton to work ‘express’ services on the CLC between Liverpool Central and Manchester Central; these stopped only at Widnes North and Warrington Central. One of these workings is seen leaving Liverpool Central in early 1964.

Looking north along platform 3 in April 1969. The picture gives a good impression of the layout of Liverpool Central within the trainshed. Large platform canopies extended beyond the arched roof. At the far end of the platform is a two-car Derby-built class 108 DMU. It would have been
operating a Gateacre service.

During the last days a class 108 DMU, forming a four-coach enthusiasts’ special, prepares to depart from Liverpool Central station. During the last month before closure the line had been cut back to the very end of platform 3 so that demolition work could proceed on the trainshed.
