Wrexham & Shropshire update

The First Class page of the Wrexham & Shropshire web site ( has been updated to clarify the meal service availability on their services.

It is now clear that complimentary meals are available to passengers to or from London who board or leave at Tame Bridge Parkway BUT are not available to passengers who board or leave at Leamington Spa.

Although I am glad the position is clarified, I am sorry that the company doesn't think that First Class passengers from Leamington should get this meal service, especially as they are of course paying more than those joining at Tame Bridge!

I would argue that there may be untapped commuter traffic from Warwickshire who would be interested in upgrading from the admittedly very good Chiltern service (especially on the two evening return services from London), and that summer tourists to Stratford would find a 11.20 'luncheon' train very attractive (though of course Chiltern would have to cooperate with a connection onwards from Stratford...)
