Looking at the map that accompanies the article you’ve supplied the link to, Wrexham North will be between Wrexham and Chester, and Wrexham South will be between Wrexham and Ruabon. Does that help you ?
Rossett makes sense but I suspect Wrexham North may be in or near Pandy, maybe on the former Gresford Colliery railyard beyond the north end of the Pandy Business Park. I’m not sure if Rossett would have the passenger draw, whereas Pandy has two business parks and a footbridge ensuring quick access to Garden Village. The whole area also seems to be targeted by various planning apps of late. The only black mark against it is that you don’t want a station on the only part of the line which is single track – you’d reduce capacity of the entire Wrexham-Chester section.
Wrexham South I’m guessing would either be in Rhostyllen or Johnstown. I would put money on Johnstown because of the wider passenger draw. If it is Johnstown, that’ll be a re-opening, as the former Johnstown and Hafod station closed in 1960.
I also suspect both may be used as parkway stations and will likely need a lot of space for car parking.
I don’t really buy that – the cost of a station on an existing line would be minimal in the scheme of things, in rail terms. Doesn’t have to be a full blown manned station with facilities, look at Ruabon – couple of platforms with bus shelters and some steps. Unless it needed compulsory purchase of land?
Bow Street station in Ceredigion was just opened in March. It’s a single platform for a three car train and a car park and cost just shy of £8 million. You can probably increase that by another third for a five car platform for the Avanti and Cardiff-Holyhead trains, and then double that for two platforms and a ramped footbridge.
£22.5 mil sounds a lot but it’s still pittance to a government.
