I am hoping this sorted now because I have plans to get the train from New Brighton to Liverpool tomorrow and the replacement bus is always a nightmare!

The problem was a faulty insulating pot, unfortunately Merseyrail have to wait until Networkrail arrive which can take a long time for the problem to be rectified.As usual the ordinary customer automatically blame Merseyrail thinking it is their fault but Networkrail own all track and signal infrastructure and it is their responsibility totally for the disruption,i hope this helps clarify the situation for you.

To be honest its not that I blame Merseyrail for the disruption, its the fact that there are zero contingency measures for such an outage and literally no customer service on the part of the Merseyrail employees who seem put out by you asking a simple question. At 5:40 last night there must have been 200 people queuing outside James Street for the rail replacement service. I got the ferry instead.
