    On holiday in aberdovey. The sound of a big ol freight movement along the coast at about 2330 last night was impressive. How common is this ? More so in past few years with lots of track rebuilding ? Is there anywhere to check what this was and when there might be another ?

    The FMU trial 10 years ago washed its face commercially but the HGV drivers (all self employed or small independent bands)closed ranks and said they would boycott delivering timber to a terminal on the Cambrian line from the forests of Ceredigion as they wanted to drive (and get paid for) the loads all the way to Kronospan.

    The proposed £90 million bypass around Newtown is partly based on complaints about timber carrying lorries driving through the town! Joined up thinking eh?
