Autumn timetable to run on Chester, Ellesmere Port, and Southport lines from Monday 9 October

In order to ensure that services on both the Chester and Ellesmere Port lines remain punctual during autumn weather conditions that result in our trains having to run slower, there will be a minor amendment to timetables for the autumn period, commencing from Monday 9 October.

Chester line: Mondays to Saturdays, trains will depart on the Chester line up to six minutes earlier than previously advertised.

The timetable change will also see a full service restored to both Green Lane and Bromborough Rake stations, which has been subject to a reduced timetable since August 2022.

Ellesmere Port line: On Mondays to Saturdays, trains will depart on the Ellesmere Port line up to eight minutes earlier than the current timetable specifies.

Southport line: An autumn timetable will be in operation from Monday 9 October. Liverpool bound services between Southport and Bank Hall will depart up to three minutes earlier than previously advertised.
