BBC Wales news last night started quite hopefully regarding trains and new money etc. etc.  Then they stated that so much money will be spent on valleys trains.  Whilst I appreciate that many people commute to Cardiff daily to work and need a good service what about north Wales?

 Arriva is in permanent trundle mode.  It should not take almost four hours to travel by train from Llandudno to Cardiff, often via Crewe.  They always neglect us and the train "service" is rubbish.

I don't really understand those changes just from reading

But I do know buses around here are god awful and unacceptable! Especially at the price they charge.

On a Sunday - buses to Conwy and Llysfaen one every 2 HOURS! Miss that and you have a ridiculous wait :roll:

I've travelled on the Sunday service a few times in the Summer and it is usually so busy that it is standing room only by the time you get to Llanrwst. It should be expanded, not axed.

FEARS a Sunday Conwy Valley train service could be axed have angered an Assembly Member.

A new timetable, which will come into effect in May, fails to include the three train services between Llandudno Junction and Blaenau Ffestiniog on a Sunday, as well as the replacement bus service during the winter months.

North Wales Assembly Member Aled Roberts, confirmed he has asked the Minister for Local Government and Communities, Carl Sargeant AM, to explain why the Sunday service has been cut.

He said: “This could be a serious blow to the local tourist industry which has benefited from the publicity given to Conwy Line in recent years.
“It is vital that we give our tourist industry all the support it needs and I am not convinced that cutting the summer Sunday service on the Conwy Valley Railway will help. If the service is not being cut then the omission on the timetable needs to be corrected immediately.”

Llandudno Junction councillor Mike Priestley said the the loss of the service could effect tourism
He added: “We should be encouraging more people to use our local railways and take cars off the road."

I wonder why the Minister is asked.  The service is surely operated by Arriva Trains Wales - it might be better if Aled and Mike asked them in the first instance.  As the December timetable has only been out a few weeks it is curious how May's timetable is out and about.

Arriva provide the service (indeed, all rail services in Wales) on behalf of the Welsh Government.

If you have an iPhone or iPad, then there is a great little App for telling you bus times. It uses GPS to work out which Bus Stop you are standing at and then tells you the times of the next few buses. Its called NextBuses and costs 69p:

I cant recommend them highly enough, a fantastic device. Its just like having a mini computer with you. Mine wasn't new, it was an unwanted gift on ebay, there are some good bargains to be had on there.
