Future of rail in Wales

Off to sunny but chilly Shrewsbury this morning, I hope to learn at the Railfuture AGM whether Wales looks like hanging on to the most profitable parts of the franchise in the current negotiations, the cross-border routes. This is of concern not only to Welsh government which obviously wants to minimise the amount of subsidy to be paid out, but also travellers between north Wales and Manchester airport and between mid-Wales and the powerhouse of the English Midlands.
