TRAIN users have the opportunity to speak directly to one of Arriva's managers on Monday, November 15.
The Shrewsbury-Chester Rail Users' Association (SCRUA), is holding a public meeting at St Mary's Social Club, Regent Street, to promote the work of the association in the Wrexham area.
Ben Davies, Stakeholder Manager (North) for Arriva Trains Wales, will be the main speaker and will present a commentary on the prospects for train services in North Wales, as part of the Wales and Borders rail franchise.
David Lloyd, chairman of SCRUA, said: 'This meeting is an opportunity for those living in and around Wrexham to meet with rail users and railway managers for discussions on current and future rail travel opportunities and to become aware of the activities of SCRUA in supporting the development of rail services between Chester and Shrewsbury.'
After the presentation there will be time for questions from the audience. Access to the meeting is free. The meeting starts at 7.30pm and concludes at 10pm.
George Jones, editor of the SCRUA newsletter, said: 'The advent of Arriva Trains Wales as the train operator for rail services via Wrexham has brought service enhancements and we hope that further improvements will be provided with the revised timetables due to come into force during 2005.
'This meeting is an opportunity for train travellers to meet the train operator's local manager and hear what improvements are planned.'
