Trip Workings - Chester District
from 5th May 1975

Part II (Wrexham, Shrewsbury & the Cambrian Lines)

Taken from the BR Trip diagrams booklet, these are the freight trip workings servicing North Wales away from the Coast line, based on Wrexham and Shrewsbury. For ease of reading, some of the trips have been split up - in particular where Saturday workings are different to the rest of the week.
