Class 777s have begun arriving in the UK ahead of their testing and introduction with Merseyrail.
The new multiple units are set the improve rail travel for people in Liverpool and are being built by Stadler.
Hans-Peter Erismann, who lives near the Stadler factory in Altenrhein, in Switzerland, has allowed the photos in this article to be shared, showing the new 777 being prepared for its journey on the 16th February 2021.
Once it leaves the factory, the unit will make its way to the Channel Tunnel before making its way to Liverpool by rail.
Merseyrail says that these trains will be able to carry 50% more passengers than the outgoing Class 508s.
777001 – 777052 are part of the first batch of units that will hopefully enter service in 2021.

A big thank you to Hans-Peter Erismann for sharing the images with us and allowing RailAdvent to publish them.
