Two railway lines in the north have gained hourly services following the May 2019 timetable change introduced last Sunday.
The Halton curve is now being serviced by an hourly Chester-Liverpool service with some services extended to Wrexham. It was previously served by a summer only parliamentary service in one direction.
Gainsborough Central and the railway line to the south of the station has gained its first Monday-Friday service since 1993 with the extension of services that previously terminated at Retford. It had previously only been served by six services on Saturdays.
