Purchased by Merseytravel and leased to Merseyrail, the new class 777 METRO EMU units replace the existing, ageing class 507 and 508 fleet.

Constructed abroad, Merseyrail class 777s have been arriving into the UK via Channel Tunnel from France, into Dollands Moor yard in Folkestone. The first unit was delivered on 9th January 2020.

Mainline testing began 16th March on the Merseyrail network.

The new units are based at Kirkdale CS and Birkenhead TMD. Similarly to the Siemens Desiro trains, the Stadler 777s have articulated carriage ajoinments instead of partition doors.

Merseyrail Class 777 Delivery Dates

Built by Stadler Rail, 52 trains are being delivered into the UK in total. Following delivery to Dollands Moor, they’re hauled by a class 66 locomotive operated by GBRF, to Kirkdale.

Looks like 12/08 as there is a VAR path to Kirkdale. Usually they’re on Wednesdays but there’s nothing tomorrow so looks like next week.

I’m convinced that the best place to see the new Merseyrail 777s en route to Kirkdale is at Earlestown (West end of P1) as they come round from Warrington passing P3. Nice slow pass!

all 777s were top and tailed from Crewe onwards, with an additional locomotive added at Crewe, 777003 was delivered to Kirkdale by 66744 and 66788, 777004 by 66765 and 66768, 777005 and 009 by 66730 and 66769, and 777007 by 66715 and 66708, with the loco added at Crewe being the one missing from your logs.

Just a small point but shouldn’t the date for 005/009 be 08/07/20 and not 09/07/20?

I believe they arrived before midnight, 23:54 according to Realtime Trains

It goes to Tuebrook GBRf freight sidings from Huyton and then turns back onto the kirkdale line

as I thought in my last comment they took 777008 & 777010 direct to kirkdale c s today 19th August which went through Ashford at 04:37 with 66756 so we will not get to see them blame the graffiti artists for this

I saw one of the 777s as part of a freight train on August 18th 2020 at Konstanz just at the German Swiss border. Took a second to compute.

777012 and 777014 went to Crewe the day after Wembley (15th October), no idea what happened to them after that. If they haven’t moved, then they’re still in the crewe UDL.

*correction, the units have been taken to Crewe Arrivacare, presumably awaiting the trip to liverpool, with 66783 on the rear of the move. Also a minor correction, 777012 and 777014 didn’t stable in Wembley Yard, they stabled in Bletchley Loop.

Merseyrail 777 001, 016 and 018 were outshopped from Stadler Rail St Margrethen factory yesterday by Railadventure BR 111 210. 777 001 has now the standard front door fitted. Pictures are available (no upload feature here).

I think they are new sets as Merseyrail liked a tweet last Monday of a train passing through the Railcam webcam at Crewe with 2 new units
