    If you want to see something else unusual, there is an empty voyager every Saturday morning. It passes Cuddington at between 0845 and 0900 on its way to Chester. I don’t know where it comes from but guess Longsight

  2. Allan Lewis Says:

    This Voyager is actually from Crewe – Holyhead and runs over the Middlewich Branch and is run that route for train crews to retain ‘route knowledge’ in case of diversions. A lot of empty trains tend to do this in various parts of the country.
