A New Northern Branch of Traws Link Cymru to be set up

Meeting in Caernarfon  to reopen railway

A meeting will be held on the 17th of April at 7pm, at Y Galeri, Caernarfon, to discuss creating a campaign to reopen the railway line between Bangor and Afon-wen.

Campaigners hope to discuss the benefits of reopening the line in the meeting, and to answer questions from the local people, and also to set out the plan on the steps needed to reopen the railway. Campaigners say that reopening the railway would benefit villages and towns along the track, also they note that reinstating the line between Afon-wen and Bangor, as well as reopening the line between Aberystwyth and Carmarthen, would create a rail network within Wales, between the North and the South, rather than travelling for extra hours and distance through England to complete the journey.

The railway was closed in the 60s with the Beeching cuts, with numerous other lines in Wales and Britain.
