Liverpool overhead railway carriage

This is the last surviving carriage from Liverpool’s overhead railway. This week its being installed at the new Museum of Liverpool. The overhead railway was the worlds first electrically-operated overhead railway. It opened in 1893 and closed in 1956. Its one of those things I wish I could have travelled on.

This is the first object to be installed at the new Museum of Liverpool.
