Dr Beeching was more of a 'Tree Surgeon'

Just look at all the BRANCH lines he lopped off.  WWW

whatever the reason for the delay as outlined on this forum, in the Pioneer or NWWN, it is bad news that the railway saga is just dragging on...this subject will soon have to be moved into the Eyesore section if the station gets any tattier

I think it's already listed in the eyesore section and quite rightly so as it is a disgrace.

Just a thought, given the recent adverse publicity around Awewa, Communities First (Wrexham) and Forces for Good, I wonder if WG are a bit sensitive about grants and are making sure they are not at any risk. This could explain the comment in North Wales Weekly News. Judith Phillips seems to have captured a lot of the local issues this week and deserves our thanks for the details given.

What we have to wait for this week is to see if the NWWN follows up any of the stories or goes back to it adverts. As for the welsh goverment they certainly threw all the money at Newport station for the golf.

Well spotted Bri.  Did I hear on the news recently that work has started on building a new railway station somewhere round Fishguard ?  Oh and I seem to remember a brand new line (or re-opening of a Beeching closure) in the Bridgend area around the time  the Assembly came into being.

Incidentally, can anyone shed any light on why north - south services terminate at a variety of destinations (some fairly off the beaten track) in the south like Maesteg, Milford Haven, Pembroke and Carmarthen as well as the more usual Swansea and Cardiff. But no services in the opposite direction terminate at Llandudno ?

Comes back to what I said in an earlier post - if Llandudno was in the south the scheme here would have been finished years ago!

A valid point, Cambrian, which reminded about a question put to our First Minister this afternoon during Questions to the First Minister in the Senedd.

When asked about the progress of road improvements to the A470, his answer simply referred to a road leaving Cardiff.

:'( I will e-mail Cll P Evans for a update. he will reply because that is the nature of the man and he may know and explain or pass the buck,but he should come to us his electrate and explain instead of sitting back all the time.All the Councillors look at this forum but very few take in what they read.

Any reply from Cll P Evans or JFS ???

Cheers

I really don't see why anyone expects any response from politicians.

When they want YOU, they will be round your door, accost you when you are shopping, and fill blogs/forums with heart felt entreaties.
But once elected, and when you want THEM.... you can forget it.

Have you not got used to that fact yet?

Llandudno does not even get mentioned by ATW for its latest promotion for Great Advance Purchase Fares.

All major stations in South Wales do and so do a few stations in England.  $walesflag$
