We had a thread that discussed the singling of the Mainde Curve. Cant see any more traffic using it said a Network Rail contributor - new log flow to Kronopsan announced last week will. Those that take out rail infrastructure don't having a particular good crystal ball.it's Padeswood that is used for the coal traffic, not Penyffordd. A trailing connection on the down line, with the empties going to Dee Marsh to run round. The other line at Penyffordd is the stub of the connection to the Mold line, last used early 90's?
With North Wales resaignalling in the pipeline I get a bit concerned about the future of the connection to Mostyn Docks. Not used at the moment but the source/destination of much traffic in the past.
