Day: 2 March 2018

Slip, slither, slide – great fun in Ludlow today amid rail chaos

It was a day off for many in Ludlow and Shropshire. All schools in our town were closed, along with a few shops. The market began a five day shutdown. Many people were forced to begin a long weekend. Train spotters had a dismal day. Not a train in sight. But Minsterley kept a basic town bus service running. Thanks guys! But, hey! It was a day for the kids. A great day for the kids.

No trains for a third day through Ludlow – no news on when they will resume

Arriva Train Wales has cancelled all trains between Manchester and Cardiff for Friday. There will not be replacement buses. The advice remains not to travel by rail or road. Arriva Trains Wales is running a limited service on the following lines only: Shrewsbury to Crewe; Crewe to Chester; Chester to Holyhead; and Wrexham to Bidston. There is no news from the rail companies on when services will resume.
