Yes, this is the Newport avoider, in case you haven't got your atlas/memory of South Wales.

This line is closing at the end of this timetable period, however the SRA being the prats they are could close it early, so if you want to do it, do it soon!

It will still be used by freight, I meant closing it in the sense of stopping passenger services on that stretch.

I intend on doing this line within the next month.

I'm doing it THIS week!

The plan is:
0830 off here, arrive Newport 0939
0944 Wessex DMU to BTM, arrive by 1030
1109 to Abergavenny, arrive whenever
First train off Abergavenny to Newport
Next train to BTM
Get a service later then to Bristol Parkway on a Voyager, then off on a HST home.
