One of Merseyrail's new Class 777s from Stadler sits in the sun on 8 June 2021. 777008 is one of five of these units seen on Kirkdale depot while others are stored at Old Walton's Jct near Warrington. Some test runs on the Merseyrail network have been reported but it was only around the depot that they moved during my time at the station. Of note these units are 4-car but they are around the same length as the 3-car Class 507s and 508s they will replace. They also feature articulated bogies.
