This is a train from Liverpool Lime Street entering Chester General; taken about 1958 or 1959. There was a regular train service between the two cities via Runcorn; I traveled on it a number of times, and it always seemed to be on a Cravens set. The service was worked from the Liverpool end, and I've always assumed that these Cravens sets were based on Merseyside, perhaps at Allerton; however, I'm sure they had all gone from Lime Street by 1960 - from what I remember, local services were worked by class 108s by that time, mainly ones with roof mounted four-position route indicators.
