Must congratulate TFW for promptly suppling Rail Replacement Coachs to carry me ( and others ) from Barmouth to Machynlleth yesterday when the 14:545 was cancelled . Two coaches supplied , one straight to Machynlleth & the other via all the other intermediate stations . The first arrived in plenty of time for the scheduled onward connection from Aberystwyth ,but not sure how the intermediate one fared as road journey infinitely longer than rail .

I'm not sure the road journey could be much longer, that train journey from Pwllheli to Machynlleth at 57 miles and nearly 2.5 hours is outrageously
slow. Good job there is plenty of scenery to look at.

Had a good view of scenery around Dolgellau & Corris , but the other coach had to travel up to Dolgellau and back down the other bank of the Mawddach to Fairbourne, Tywyn Aberdyfi etc. Fairbourne from Barmouth by train is 8 mins, coach over 1/2 hour.

Hence why a lot of people use the car park near Morfa Mawddach as a "Barmouth Park & Walk", or Park & Ride if they time it with the 2 hourly train service (or if the weather turns wet & windy)
