Merseyrail’s Christmas late night trains are back for the festive period!

Trains are running the two weekends before Christmas, making getting home from Liverpool city centre really easy.

Trains will run late on the following nights:

Friday 11th December

Saturday 12th December

Friday 18th December

Saturday 19th December

The last Northern line train will depart Liverpool Central at 1:30am and arrive at Southport at 2:04am.

The train will only stop at: Liverpool Central, Waterloo, Formby and Southport.

The train will not stop at any other stations on this line. Passengers will only be allowed to board services at Liverpool Central. This is a drop off service only.

If you have purchased a return or day saver ticket it will be valid on the late trains even though the journey times are in the early hours of the following day. You can also use a Railpass or Trio for journeys on the late night trains, but Saveways will not be valid.

Anyone without a ticket can purchase one for £3 from Liverpool Central on the night.

Trains are also running on Boxing Day for the first time ever between approximately 9am – 6.30pm.
