18th May 2014 - 1st June 2014

The new timetables come in from Sunday 18 May and for the Mid Cheshire line there is a timetable change for many trains in the Manchester-bound direction.

From Chester Station some of the trains are running 5 minutes earlier than previously. All trains from the 0804 to the 1704 from Chester will now be leaving at 0759 and every hour until the 1659 (Monday to Saturday).

They will still take the same length of time as before, so will be arriving into Piccadilly 5 minutes earlier at 30 minutes past. This change continues through to the 1704 becoming a 1659, but thereafter the trains from 1804 onwards stay as they were.

Also the first Sunday train from Chester will call additionally at Lostock Gralam and Ashley stations (eg it will now call at all stations).     

Please check the new timetable (number 17) dated from 18th May 2014 before travel otherwise passengers may find that their train has left 5 minutes earlier than they were expecting.
