Wake up Merseyrail.

Though as a matter of principle I never set foot in the Midlands they do occasionally have some good ideas. Take this for instance First glimpse at £5m light rail network such a system could be used to provide Sefton with a link between Aintree and Bootle Oriel Road for about the same cost. The stations at either end just need the platforms clearing and the route needs the collection of trees removed from it.
With a bit more work Warrington Bank Quay could be connected to Liverpool South Park Way in preparation for an onward connection to the Airport. Providing a quick link from the WCML into Liverpool than going via Crewe.
A similar type of unit could be used in the rebuilding of the Burscough Curves to connect Ormskirk to Southport or perhaps reduce the cost of rebuilding the Skelmersdale Branch from Ormskirk, perhaps with a tram at the Skem end into town.
