Nice pictures. Brought back some memories of my journeys from Birkenhead Woodside, via Chester and Wrexham to Chirk. (Grandparents abode). At Chester there was an engine run around to exit from the same direction as we entered. The full route was Birkenhead, Chester, ….Shrewsbury, …. Wolverhampton …. London Paddington. Sometimes the train was an "Express" stopping only at major places, including Chirk for some reason, but other times we stopped at virtually envy place on the route, such as Rock ferry, Port Sunlight, Upton, Gresford, Cefn, Ruabon (Change here for Llangllen) and many more I have forgotten.
