Welcome to the Arriva Trains Wales JourneyCheck Alerts service.
This service offers the ability to register for the automatic provision of train service disruption information via email. The information supplied comes directly from staff in the Arriva Trains Wales Service Delivery Centre in the Arriva Trains Wales Control Centre, combined after the train starts its journey with data automatically recorded (where available) by the movement of the train along the track.
This service is being provided to you through Arriva Trains Wales and its parent company Arriva and was developed by Nexus Alpha Limited. This service is subject to the following terms and conditions. You are legally bound by them even if you choose not to read them:
Although Arriva Trains Wales will take considerable effort to ensure that the service we provide to you is of good quality, there may be difficulties that can affect the service. Neither Arriva Trains Wales or Nexus Alpha Limited provide any warranty or accept any liability whatsoever for any loss or damage from: defects that may exist to the service and the website, omissions or errors, reliance on the service resulting from delays, service interruptions, inaccurate alerts, the customer's inability or failure to use the service, or suspension or withdrawal of any part of the service. Arriva Trains Wales accepts no liability or responsibility for technical inaccuracies, technical difficulties, loss of data, service settings, mis-delivery or storage failure of data, human error or other interruptions to the service. Liability is hereby disclaimed to the fullest extent permitted by law.
The very nature of train service disruption information means that it can take time for network and service problems to be reported back to the Service Delivery Centre, who then enter the information into the JourneyCheck Alerts system. Also, the nature of service disruption means that on occasion it can change quite rapidly. Disruption information is by nature an imprecise process, as the future is predicted from the present position:
The JourneyCheck Alerts service provides an "as is" snapshot of the reported state of the network in the context of the journey you have defined and at the time you have registered to be alerted.
Arriva Trains Wales and Nexus Alpha Limited reserve the right to terminate your subscription to this service at their discretion. The service is provided for the personal use of passengers and potential passengers of the transport system to enquire about journeys, and for no other purpose.
The customer warrants that they are the legitimate owner of a registered email address.
The JourneyCheck Alert service uses a defined set of rules to determine what message to send when there are a number of different incidents likely to affect your journey:
This service is being provided by Arriva Trains Wales with no intended cost to the end user. The subscriber should be aware that whilst the "desktop" delivery of emails is generally free, the delivery of emails to mobile devices can incur charges from your mobile service operator.
Not withstanding, Arriva Trains Wales reserve the right to review the pricing policy in the future. Notice will be given in advance to all subscribers should any changes in pricing policy take place, and no charges would be raised without a re-subscription process.

The image contains a combinations of letters selected only from the 26 letters of the English alphabet, and can be mixed case. There are no numbers.
The letters displayed in the image may or may not read as a real word. You must simply reproduce the letters in the text box below the image as you read them.
The purpose of insisting on this part of the registration process is to prevent computers registering multiple users automatically for malicious reasons. Sadly this is a common problem for websites these days and this is one of the few methods available to circumvent these systems.
The letters are purposefully (and randomly) irregular to make it difficult for them to be read by a computer. This may mean that on occasions the image is ambiguous even to the human eye. If you struggle to read the letters in the image, simply click on the refresh image button to get an alternative option.
