    Newton-Le-Willows to Chester

    Always best to check the fares on www.brfares.com beforehand. You would then have known the price of the inter-available off-peak day return (I know you shouldn't have to do this).

    Why are on-train announcements much clearer on some services than others?

    There has been a very long-running issue whereby on-train announcements are too quiet to be heard on 142s, 150s and 156s. You can sometimes tell that someone is speaking but even those with normal hearing really struggle to make out what is being said. I have often mentioned this to conductors.
