Rail Disruption 21st June to 25th June
There will be a Ludlow circular on the 25th June but no trains.
Tfw are advising walkers not to travel by train on 21, 23 and 25 June, with the majority of TfW rail services suspended as a result of industrial action resulting from the dispute between RMT and Network Rail.
Due to the wider disruption caused, TfW are also advising customers to only travel by rail if essential for 20, 22, 24 and 26 June.
TfW is not in dispute with RMT, but the industrial action means they are unable to operate rail services on Network Rail infrastructure
Walk on 3rd September
We are walking on 3rd September on a Shifnal Circular in memory of Gerry. All are invited and the walk may give an opportunity for those who could not attend the funeral, to say a last farewell. The walk planned follows a route which was a favourite of Gerry and is easy to walk. We hope to see as many as possible.

Heart of Wales line – Bucknell
We’re fortunate to live in Bucknell station, on the Heart of Wales line. Our kids think it’s a dream house, and 6 months after we moved in, still run to the windows every time a train passes.
The station’s old ticket office was converted to a house in the 1970s, and is now an annex to the part of the house we live in. We’ve recently finished renovating it as a holiday let, and thought your members might be interested to hear more about it.
