train hit person - Arriva Trains Wales - Nantwich railway station sign

A new rail timetable for Sunday services in Nantwich will come in to effect this weekend, says the Crewe and Shrewsbury Passenger Association (CASPA).

New Transport for Wales timetables do not impact on weekday services, but Sunday services are completely altered.

Martin Bond, spokesman for Crewe and Shrewsbury Passenger Association, said they have been lobbying for a much improved Sunday service for decades.

“We at last have something,” he declared.

With the new Sunday timetable most of the Manchester – Wales services no longer call at Nantwich or other intermediate stations, which will now go non-stop Crewe – Shrewsbury.

Instead, there is a regular shuttle service, similar to that during the week, calling all stations.

This will provide Nantwich and the other stations with a regular train every two hours in each direction.

“Hopefully, this won’t be the last change,” added Martin.

“Transport for Wales that operates the service has an aspiration to operate the same service on Sunday as Saturday – though probably starting later in the day.

“However, it isn’t likely to be introduced until we get the new trains that are on order.

“If you are a regular traveller it is recommended that you do check your train times for next week, especially if your journey involves changing trains.”

    Actually there is one train in each direction that is still a long distance going to or from Cardiff. From Nantwich it is the 1133, which fills the gap between the 1022 and 1329 shuttle services.
