The first rail services directly linking north Wales, Cheshire and Liverpool have started running for the first time in more than 40 years. Direct daily trains between Wrexham and Liverpool are among the 215 additional weekly services. Two Wrexham to Liverpool services will run each day from Monday to Saturday, with one in the opposite direction. The services are being introduced thanks to Network Rail's upgrade of the Halton Curve track in Cheshire.
Direct services start running for the first time in 40 years after the track was upgraded.
