John Allcock, on behalf of WBRUA, said: "We have become aware that TfW Rail Services is likely to introduce 4 additional services from Wrexham to Bidston and back to Wrexham on Sundays from 9 December 2018.
"The WBRUA has been campaigning for a better service on the line and welcomes these additional services on a Sunday. An early proposal though was for one of the new northbound services to run fast between Wrexham General and Bidston, stopping only at Penyffordd and Shotton.
"The WBRUA now understands that the timetable will be tweaked so this train, like all other services on the line, will call at all stations including Neston.
"These additional trains on a Sunday are the first step towards a more frequent reliable service on the line which the WBRUA has been pushing for many years. Next year new 3 coach diesel/battery hybrid trains will appear on the line and by December 2021 the weekday service should have increased to two trains an hour."
