Trip Over Halton Curve

4th July 2015

The usual summer timetable trip over the Curve has been confirmed by "Northern Trains" as operating on Saturday 4th July 2015.
The train will depart Chester at 0753 and call at Helsby (dep 0802),  Frodsham (dep 0807), Runcorn Mainline (dep 0819) and arrive Liverpool South Parkway at 0829.
We have been unable to charter road transport for the return journey and Northern advise normal fares are available. Helsby & Frodsham passengers can purchase a ticket to Liverpool if they wish and return via Birkenhead or Chester or alternatively via Huyton & Warrington (Bank Quay).
Passengers may also, if they wish, purchase a return ticket to Widnes from Chester and travel to Liverpool South Parkway and return via Warrington (Central) walk to Bank Quay and return to Chester for £8.60. ( No need to alight at Widnes as long as the train calls there).
An alternative suggestion is to make a day of it and purchase a Cheshire Day Ranger. The adult price is £22.50 or £14.85 with a railcard; the area of validity is West Kirby, New Brighton, Newton le Willows, Manchester (Victoria & Piccadilly), Glossop/Hadfield, New Mills (Central), Buxton, Stoke, Whitchurch, Chester,& Shotton. You can then spend a whole day spinning around!
We also hope to make a video of the occasion, watch out for our filming team.
