I have £34.40, being Preston -> Wigan (£6.30 CDR - Route "Avanti") + Wigan -> Crewe (£14.80 CDR - Route "Any Permitted") + Crewe -> Shrewsbury (£13.30 CDR - Route "." ).

Splitting so as to travel via Chester doesn't seem to result in anything cheaper overall, also using off peak day return fares.

Off peak return (SVR) between Preston and Shrewsbury is £44.30 so almost a tenner saving!

- Preston to Manchester Piccadilly TPE Only CDR (£12.40). Any Permitted CDR is available for £13.70
- TFW Only CDR Manchester Piccadilly to Wilmslow (£5.70)
- Wilmslow to Shrewsbury CDR not via Wolverhampton (£15.30)

Total is £33.40 or £34.70 with the Any Permitted from Preston.

Well if the Crewe to Ruabon is valid either way. What about Wigan to Ruabon anytime day return £21 it is valid via Crewe not sure about Shrewsbury though. A Chester to Shrewsbury day return is £11.60 it is valid via Crewe.

The Ormskirk to Chester part can be done with an all zone merseyrail daysaver for £5.50
Worth noting that a Saveaway is only 5p more at £5.55, and is valid on all train, bus and ferry services within the Merseyside area. As opposed to the DaySaver which is only valid on Merseyrail services.

For the sake of 5p I'd definitely go for the extra flexibility.
