Plans for a new Abertillery railway station move a step closer
Transport minister Edwina Hart has said the government is looking at whether a new station could be based near Tesco
Mrs Hart said work to allow the Ebbw Vale line to take on more services including potential trains to Abertillery had already started
Mrs Harts comments came in response to a question from Blaenau Gwent AM Alun Davies who said Many people in Blaenau Gwent Minister see the next priority in the development of the Ebbw line as a new station to Abertillery

If it wasnt for Beeching Abertillery would still have a railway station. So would SixBells. It might also have some industry and jobs.
I remember as a lad getting on the train in SixBells and going to Brynmawr market to buy a duckling! The railway line was also a good place to flatten our pennies Smile
