A petition to re-open the Aberystwyth to Carmarthen railway line has been launched by Mark Worrall from Cadiff University. 1000 people are needed to sign this petition so that the Welsh Government will consider it.
The petition reads;
"We call on the National
Assembly for Wales to urge the Welsh Government to re-open the train
line from Carmarthen to Aberystwyth.
We believe this is vital
for the local communities and the Welsh economy as a whole as it will
allow the transition of people and services to areas which are otherwise
isolated. This will support the local economies and create a more fluid
connection between North and South Wales. At present the only rail
connections from North to South Wales must divert through England."
Would the reinstated line be usefull for you?

Merlin at Ynyslas - This afternoon Chris watched a male Merlin chasing a Meadow Pipit at Ynyslas. The outcome was unknown as they flew out of sight over the dunes behind him.
