Many rail commuters will know the Aberdare service is ‘missing’ a train from Queen Street between 17.45 and 18.45 on weekdays and Saturdays. I have been in discussion with the network since being elected, and am proud to be able to announce that there will be a passenger service at 18.15 from Queen Street permanently from December.

Even better – the service will be added on a temporary basis between now and December, starting Saturday 10 August. However, this is based on freight services not needing the line, so please check before travelling.

This is great news for Cynon Valley commuters.
