Trip Workings - Chester District
from 3rd May 1976

Part II (Wrexham & Shrewsbury)

Taken from the BR Trip diagrams booklet, these are the freight trip workings based on Wrexham and Shrewsbury. The remainder, those running from Chester along the North Wales coast appear on a separate page. 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.
The major change from the 1975 workings (Link), is the disappearance of the Cambrian workings. The daily trip to Porthmadog and Pwllheli is now in the mandatory working timetable, and runs from Bescot rather than Shrewsbury.
