Halton Curve Parliamentary Train 2015

Posted on June 26th, 2015, by The Chairman

Here are details of the above event.  We hope you will be able to join our colleagues from the North Cheshire Rail Users Group (NCRUG).  NCRUG tell us a video of the event will be made and shots will be taken both on the train and at various vantage points along the route.  They say “If you are photogenic, or even if you’re not, why not come along anyway!”

The details are on the poster, below.

Halton Curve Leaflet 2015

NCRUG look forward to seeing as many as possible and that the numbers will be high enough to contribute favourably to the project to re-instate the Halton curve.  No doubt many MCRUA members will be there, having travelled down on the first Mid Cheshire Line train to Chester.

    The 0642 ex Navigation Road should connect with this, I may well give this a go.
    It’ll be interesting to see if you can buy a through ticket on the mid Cheshire line??

    Re: Mike – Unless there’s any special fares for the parliamentary which aren’t normally available you’d probably be best off buying a normal ticket from Navigation Road to Liverpool South Parkway. Chester to Runcorn is normally £9.30 single or £11.40 return!

    Jen, I was thinking of taking the brochure with me and having the discussion with the guard.
    Afterwards I’d planned to head to Lime Street and then back to Chester by electric

    Actually, looking into this a bit further, I think the best option may be a Cheshire Day Ranger, which will get me to Liverpool Lime Street. With a Senior Rail Card it is £14.85.

    I notice there’s a mention of no vintage bus service this year. If anyone’s interested later in the day there’s a ‘beer and bus’ event serving Warrington, Lymm, Altrincham and Knutsford using buses preserved by The Wigan Transport Trust. Details are on the North West Bus Blog website: http://www.thenorthwestbusblog.co.uk/2015/06/beer-and-bus-run-in-altrincham-knutsford-lymm-warrington.html
