Timetable September 20

We have become aware that the 6 day timetable in operation at the end of September has problems for southbound travellers. There are no trains stopping at intermediate stations between the 07.34 and the 11.20, both times ex Crewe.
There are through trains Crewe – Shrewsbury and beyond but nothing stopping at our stations for a period of nearly 4 hours.
The Chairman is going to tackle TfW on this. One suggestion is that the 09.06, 10.06 and 11.06 all stop at Nantwich, Whitchurch and Wem. Perhaps one should stop at all stations.
The northbound stopping trains are not affected.
We are not sure of the reason for all this, but one factor will be that the Heart of Wales line is currently closed because of the freight crash near Llanelli, and the storm damage on the route. Promise for return of service on the HoW is November.
If you are disadvantaged by this, please do put in a complaint to TfW on their web site. It all helps.
