The Welsh Labour Government’s rail operation Transport for Wales has now claimed it’s “back to normal” following the major disuption of its services throughout November and December … but the response to that claim from some Penarth rail commuters appears to be “exactly!”
The struggling transport utility is now supposed to have a full slate of rolling stock to run its services – but it appears that some trains are still being cancelled without notice, or are running late.
It had been reported that Transport for Wales had now overcome the raft of technical problems and breakdowns which occurred in November and December – but it appears that there are still some difficulties for the train operator .
Trains scheduled from Penarth later in the morning from 08:00 onwards appeared to be running to time.
It’s understood that the train cancellation was caused by congestion at Cardiff – where the 7.34 train was terminated to avoid its conflicting with the next Penarth train .
A Transport for Wales spokesman said “We apologise for the cancellation of the 07:34 from Penarth this morning due to operational reasons and the impact this had on customers. Cancelling trains is always a last resort and we do not make these decisions lightly.”
