Initial Arriva Merseyside network
Initial Arriva Merseyside network
I was wondering if anyone had a list of the original routes operated by Arriva Merseyside after taking over MTL North - particularly those which were in the Liverpool area as there's a few route numbers I can think of but I can't remember where the actual route itself went

The X8 had been split in Liverpool by the time Arriva brought MTL, the Arriva section was running Banks-Liverpool only.

RE: Initial Arriva Merseyside network
I'm pretty sure it was the 10 which went through to Earlestown as it was always worked from St Helens depot and 10A was worked from Green Lane and thus only ran to St Helens (although North Western in the 90's did run the 10A through to Parr).

I thought the 10 went to Ashton, 10A was Parr but operated by North Western/Arriva, i don't think the Merseybus 10A ever went the other side of St Helens, i remember Merseybus 14 Earlstown-Prescot via Rainhill.

Sorry it was The 10 was to Earlestown (was cut from Ashton in July 99, then St Helens April 2000, when the 14 Prescot-St Helens replaced it)
10A was only to St Helens
In the mid 90s the North Western 10A did operate to Parr, then CmT started again around 02/03

I thought so as I remember it was one of the final haunts for the National 2's upon Arriva's takeover. The North Western 10A Parr extension ran through to Parr Terminus (Derbyshire Hill Road/Fleet Lane) whereas CMT's later extension only went as far as the Horseshoe Pub (Broad Oak Road/Newton Road roundabout).
