Wrexham & Shropshire's new direct train service to London will start on Monday 28 April, offering passengers five trains a day in each direction between stations from Wrexham, through Shropshire and on to London Marylebone.

The announcement comes after the company received its safety certificate and formal operating licence from the Office of Rail Regulation (ORR).

Andy Hamilton, Managing Director at Wrexham & Shropshire, said: "We're delighted to announce that we will be running trains from the end of this month and look forward to welcoming passengers on board."

Wrexham & Shropshire's trains are currently being refitted to exacting standards by a specialist firm in Stoke-on-Trent. The refurbished trains will offer passengers a modern, comfortable travelling environment once completed this summer. In the meantime, to allow leisure and business travellers to take advantage of the new service as soon as possible, the company is hiring trains for use from 28 April for the first few months of operation.

Andy Hamilton continues: "We've had tremendous support for our new rail service and have been working non-stop to get ready for the launch. I'm sure people will support our decision to use good quality hire trains until our own ones are ready especially as it means we can launch the service earlier."

Wrexham & Shropshire will announce details of its range of value-for-money fares and how and where people can buy tickets in the next couple of weeks.
