Trip Workings - Chester & North Wales
from 14th May 1990

Taken from the BR Trip Notice booklet "North West and North Wales", these are the freight trip workings servicing Chester and the North Wales coast line. There is a significant change from previous years - the booklet covers the LMR north of Crewe, so all trip numbers are different. Additionally, no Wrexham and Shrewsbury area workings are mentioned - and the North Wales coast workings are severely reduced. Finally, Departmental workings are separated from revenue workings.
