Request stops

We are aware of problems on evening services northbound at Yorton, Prees and Wrenbury, when these have been request stops. The request to stop is no longer booked, and is no longer offered. TfW say this is because they have to use one door on a short platform. This happens on the Cambrian line and in N Wales too. However other companies have found a solution to this, but TfW appear unable to resolve this. Perhaps they should talk to Great Western, Anglian Trains or ScotRail. If thy can do it, why can’t TfW?

New ticket machines for Whitchurch / Nantwich

We are pleased to report that TfW have installed two new ticket machines at Witchurch and Nantwich station. We reported on this project in 2019, but these are the first machines to reach our line. There have been recent reports of them going in at Hereford. This is good news. So there are now machines on both platforms.

MP backs Whitchurch step free access

Good news. We see it reported in the Whitchurch Herald that the local MP Owen Patterson is supporting the improvement of access to the south bound platform at the station. There is no strep free access at this time. You can read about our campaign here This project has been at the forefront of CASPA campaigning for many years.
