This is not the train Abertillery wants.

You won't believe what I sent to The Gazette on Sunday.

How much do you think we cough up for Cllr McCarthy & Co ?

Reach for your tin hat Ian you may need it. It looks like you’re going to be accused of being a Liberal Democrat, for reading the Daily Mail.

Best of luck with that.

Nah - Ian's hated enough to warrant being a Frankie.

Whilst we are talking about trains a new station is due to open in October. The ground has been cleared and regular users will see the site at Pye Corner, Newport, just after Rogerstone, on the left, or port, side.

At one committee meeting I attended we were given a presentation on the options for expanding rail travel in the SEWTA (S E Wales Transport Association) area.
There were I think 12 prospective new stops and they included Cwm, Abertillery and - yes - Pye Corner.

Cwm's was I believe projected to be the least economic, being the costliest to create but not having anywhere near the largest passenger-pulling power.

Pye Corner was I think a costly one as well.

Abertillery's, although costly, was one of - if not the - most economic, because passenger projections were the highest of them all I think.

Amazing - the first two got theirs and we are still waiting, despite the perceived greater economic benefits.
