Wrexham Central Railway Station

Wrexham Central railway station is the smaller of two main railway stations serving Wrexham (the other being Wrexham General). The platform can accommodate a three car diesel train, but has room for platform extension. It is the southern terminus of the Borderlands Line, also known as the Wrexham-Bidston line, which links north-east Wales to Merseyside.
