Trip Workings - Chester District
from 2nd May 1977

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.
