Network Rail devolving

It is not clear from the official announcement, but it could be that Network Rail managers in Wales could have more autonomy in future. The announcement speaks of devolving routes rather than regions, but this must be seen as a move towards making the rail infrastructure corporation more responsive to local concerns.

If this works out then it should be welcomed. Train fares seem to be cheaper than both Bus & Car costs, unfortunately there's only one train per hour from Maesteg Station, while there are four busses; but that's up to the public to use the railway more often, it's an excellent service.

The success of the Llynfi line reopening demonstrates how short-sighted it was to restrict it to single-line working.
