    Manchester Recovery Taskforce (timetable) consultation

    It used to be more than half full leaving Chester. Add all the intermediate stations to Newton and it was standing and full. Two thirds decanted at Oxford Road. Assuming that people return to these services in numbers then things will get very busy at Newton in the Peak.

    Manchester Recovery Taskforce (timetable) consultation

    As a former commuter I can assure you that is IS Oxford Road they want as a final destination and a swap at Newton of two thirds of a three car 175 or 195 onto an already full 319 isn't going to be popular.

    True enough, though a lot of the commuter traffic from Helsby/Frodsham is/was for Oxford Road.

    December 2020 Timetable Change

    You should during Winter else your battery could go flat and if you haven't enough antifreeze in your coolant then that can also be an issue.

    December 2020 Timetable Change

    Some more Northern services have dropped in. Helsby gets three services in a morning on the Chester to Leeds service, one of which seems to replace the TFW service that was at 0720 into Piccadilly with an 0729 into Victoria.

    8 Northern routes to not return to full service in December

    It will be interesting to see if the service from E Port is a useful one or a bare bones one. Thanks for the information.

    8 Northern routes to not return to full service in December

    The Ellesmere Port to Leeds service seems to have been canned. I used this for a while when it started up as I used to work in Manchester next to Victoria station. There isn't even a replacement service from Chester. The evening service to Ellesmere Port still runs I note.

    Northern Consultation Dec 2020

    We'll have to wait and see. I no longer commute by rail any more but still retain an interest in this route having endured the misery of peak time travel on it for 9 years. I wonder which TfW services are to be changed?

    Northern Consultation Dec 2020

    It looks like. The Helsby to E Port goes back to a twice a day shuttle by the looks of it.

    New Chester to Leeds service

    It would. Better for passengers and better for Northern. This Northern morning service does get a few on it, but you just can't trust it to run.

    New Chester to Leeds service

    Ellesmere Port to Leeds cancelled again this morning. Train crew again.

    New Chester to Leeds service

    That will explain things, thank you. That said it was busy again this morning.

    New Chester to Leeds service

    Standing only from Newton Le Willows this morning. Probably down to a cancelled service but it was the busiest I've seen it. It is getting busier slowly. The 0729 from Helsby is benefitting from passengers transferring off the 0721 service from Chester as well as the few locals. The 1707 from...

    5T06 - Widnes to Chester

    An interesting run today. 5T06 which is showing on RTT as a Class 390 operating from Widnes TT to Chester DMU depot. I assume this would have been a drag all the way from Widnes?

    New Chester to Leeds service

    In which case they may as well make them all stops in the Peak at least. I'm on and off at Helsby so the E Port service suits me fine but I'm sure there are potential passengers from Frodsham and Runcorn East who would avail of the service. I notice a few more changing at Helsby off the 0721...

    New Chester to Leeds service

    I've been using the E Port to Man Vic service both ways a couple of times a week for a while now and there does seem to be a slow and steady increase in patronage both ways. I'm not saying it's fully loaded by any means but the sorry Pacer we endured back to E Port yesterday was half full from...
