The West Wirral stations are shown in different eras and much steam activity is pictured in this area. The transition to electric traction is seen at various locations, as are the local goods services.

The long forgotten line to Hooton is presented with some fascinating early views. We return to Birkenhead to visit the docks, also the recent tramway built at their eastern end.
