    Helsby to Ellesmere Port

    Travelled on this line yesterday, I go on it from time to time as it is quite local to me and a curious service. Got on 1545 at Helsby, and amazed as 3 passengers got off the arriving service from Ellesmere Port. I got on and decided to travel as far as Stanlow and Thornton and cross foot bridge...
