The Overhead Railway carriage - which many will remember from the basement display in the old Liverpool Museum before it became World Museum - has been conserved in a project funded by our membership scheme. Now fully restored, this morning it was delivered to the Museum of Liverpool ready to go out on display there. This makes it the first object in the brand new museum, which opens next year.
It was quite a sight to see the carriage arriving and travelling past the Liver Building, as it once would have done, full of passengers enjoying the view. Today there was quite a crowd at the Pier Head to greet it. If you didn't make it down you can see some photos of the carriage's last journey on our Overhead Railway Carriage goes home set on Flickr - and keep an eye out for it in the local news tonight.
