To make everyone's journey more pleasant, alcohol is now banned on London Midland trains from Liverpool after 9pm on Friday & Saturday nights.
Boarding controls will be in operation, supported by the British Transport Police; if you try to bring alcohol on board, or we think you’ve had too much to drink, you won’t be allowed to travel.
These restrictions are in place following a series of drink-related incidents on board late night trains on the Liverpool route. Other measures have also being introduced, including security staff and police officers on-board trains between Liverpool and Crewe.
Thank you for your co-operation.
