Woodfin Bus Timetable

In a recent article about local historical transport services mention was made of Zacchaeus Woodfin's, horse-drawn bus services to Chester and the surrounding villages in the 20's and 30's. Local resident, Pete Maiden, has responded by sending TOL a copy of a Zac Woodfin's Passenger, Parcel & Motor Service Timetable, dated 6th October 1930.

The most interesting fact revealed by this document is that although it clearly states that Zac Woodfin's garage was located in Tarvin, the bus service service did not actually come through Tarvin!
