Short-term savings on Valley Lines would be a mistake
This is a rare disagreement with Eluned Parrott AM. Her call (backed by some Conservatives) for a light-rail option for the Valley Lines is short-sighted in my opinion. Travellers on the reopened lower end of the Llynfi line quickly learned of the disadvantages of not reconstruction to standard rail specification. The need to increase capacity has already resulted in the plan to construct at least one passing loop.
