Flintshire and Wrexham stops on UK list of busiest train stations


On Time Trains was launched in 2017, with the goal of revealing just how often our trains run on time.

Its website allows people to search for a journey, such as their commute, to see the best and worst services to travel on.

Data which OnTimeTrains has collated also shows the visitor rates of train stations throughout the UK.

Data shown is collected from National Rail (Darwin), Network Rail, NaPTAN, ORR Station Usage and Open Rail Data Community.

The majority of data on the site, including departures and arrivals, is refreshed every 5-10 minutes.
