The new 'Irish Mancunian'?
An unusual working the new timetable on the North Wales
Coast line, althoughcommon on other Arriva Trains Wales
routes, involved the 08:50 train from Manchester Poiccadilly
on Mondays - Fridays. This is formed of a pair of two-car
units coupled together, which separate at at Chester. The
first unit (the only one advertised to have a refreshment
trolley) then departs Chester at 09:58 to Holyhead, calling
only at Llandudno Junction and Bangor, arriving at Holyhead
The second unit departs Chester at 10:02 and heads for
Llandudno. Unlike other xx.50 trains from Manchester,
however, it does not call at all stations west of Chester,
missing Shotton and Abergele and leaving a 92-minute gap in
westbound service at those places. This enables it to match
the Llandudno arrival times of 'normal' Manchester -
Llandudno trains which depart Chester at xx:55.
Apparently the intended consist is a pair of Class 158
units, although Class 150s have been seen, possibly pending
the completion of the Class 158 refurbishment programme.
Manchester has had no through trains to Bangor or Holyhead
since the demise some years ago of the daily boat train
which used to depart Manchester (originally Victoria, later
Picccadilly) at 10:03, killed off by Arriva's idea for a
'clockface timetable.' Now, in addition to the 08:50, the
07:50 from Manchester runs to Holyhead and the 10:50 to
Bangor, both formerly Llandudno trains. On Saturdays,
however. all the above trains still simply run to Llandudno
In the eastbound direction, there is no return Holyhead -
Manchester 'boat train' and just one Bangor - Manchester
service, the 13:31 Bangor - Manchester. which again is
