Hope all goes well with this. Hopefully we might see a few charters use the line. Could be wishful thinking on my part though.

Sorry for being pedantic but you already get charters on the Cambrian, albeit hauled by NR's 97/3s.

You are right though, the Cambrian could see more charters.

Yes. I am fully aware of that. What I should of said was 'more' charters.

Yeah that would be nice. One of the recent charters actually had a 57 on it but it was tucked in behind one of the 97/3s.

Yes. You can never have enough, especially on the Coast line.
Although I think there's a restriction been put on recently to loco hauled on Bridge 83 west of Minffordd. Not sure if it's been lifted yet?

That's one of the plans for them, so WCRC can start running more charters down onto the Cambrian without having to hire NRs 97/3s. The other bonus is that the system in the 37s is a far more updated system to the earlier Ansaldo system in the 97s.

I wasn't aware of this, it would be a pity if that's the case. It also makes you wonder how test trains would get to Pwllheli because they can't go via Dolgellau, Ruabon, Bangor and Caernarfon anymore. :(:roll:

From a friend of mine:

"There's been a speed restriction on the bridge for several weeks now, and a few TSR's between Afonwen and Pwllheli - these are I think in relation to sleeper replacement work but I don't know about Glaslyn Bridge"
