    Arriva train to Holyhead loses the rear 2 coaches here. Unlike the Aberystwyth train it then continues in same direction only to reverse at Chester.

    If you have got time to kill, get a coffee at Infinity & Beyond Comic book shop and cafe. It's awesome.

    If mechanical railway signalling is of interest to you then Shrewsbury station is a good place to be. Fabulous station frontage as well.

    If your hungry and got time to kill before your train, Al Piccolinos does amazing takeaway pizzas. Directly opposite the station, across the road.

    The front two coaches to Aberystwyth are at the back when it comes in (goes out the same way it comes in). Back two for the Cambrian coast

    The front two coaches to Aberystwyth are at the back when it comes in (goes out the same way it comes in). Back two for the Cambrian coast. You have until Machynlleth to figure it out (about 1:30)

    If you are on the Arriva train Wales to or from Aberystwyth, swap seat direction because the train changes direction.
