Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
hmm, nice new timetable last weekend, discovered the highlights tonight...

train services from Hereford to Cardiff

20:00
20:41
22:21
10:10

is this ludicrus or what? we have to either catch the 20:41 or the 22:21 or we're stuck until 10 the next morning!

:mad: i thought Arriva promised to make our services better :mad:

    Not at all suprising. Probably not much money in more services.

    Almost as good as Nothern's great idea for a new service between Selby and Wakefield. A car journey takes about half an hour, the train takes nearly 2 hours, and they've cut the Selby - Manchester services. Better service my arse.

    you think transpennine is bad?
    arriva is worse
    the metro is shitter stiff

    I believe this was a first western train - I was scarred to move in case I caught something

    At least Arriva is no more! HAIL NOTHERN AND THEIR HOMOSEXUAL LIVERY!!

    I assume you mean First North Western which are now Northern - their fleet is terrible, I'm suprised you got there in one piece.

    :lol: That train looks like a fag mobile. My eyes burned when I saw it.

    Just the eight reverses on a return journey- splendid!

    Anyway, the timetables have nothing to do with Arriva Trains Wales, and everything to do with the "Strategic" Rail Authority who tells Arriva when and where to run the trains.

    Hey, how's it going?

    First recently took over Scotrail. Their new livery is actually an improvement on the old one! http://www.railpic.co.uk/p5642391.html

    As for Arriva trains Wales, I'll bet you get a more frequent service on the Ffestiniog railway.

    Ohhh god no, WElsh pride laaaa! Wales is where the celts came from and I'm a pure blooded celt obviously because I was born in Wales.

    Omg the English are so bad all they have done and we still have reason to hate them even today.

    Welsh pride!


    Adopt a sheep....

    But yeah, I never put my faith in Arriva, not reliable and pricy (bus services in my area anyway).
