TfW one year in

It is a year today since Transport for Wales took over rail services in Wales (on 14 October 2018).

The operator has been clear that changes will take some time and can’t be immediate. But for many passengers the same concerns about overcrowding, expensive tickets and poor service continue. To mark their first anniversary, Wales on Line asked TfW to identify the ten things they’re proudest of achieving since taking over.

You can read about it here.

But don’t get too excited, rest assured, there is nothing much as yet for our line from Shrewsbury to Crewe and beyond. TfW have serious problems in the south to deal with, not least how to manage the end of the Pacer fleet, ongoing maintenace and upgrade of the current fleet of trains, and late delivery of replacement trains. A perfect storm.
