More trains operational from valley to capital
ADDITIONAL train services are now in operation between Cardiff and Aberdare, including several services that have been added on Sundays.
Transport for Wales issued its new timetable changes this month and they are now in operation.
It brings some good news to train commuters who, in some places, have seen much travel disruption since the franchise took over.
But now services have been added between Cardiff and Aberdare and Cardiff and Merthyr Tydfil.
Other services have also been altered slightly so travellers are advised to check their journeys.
From Monday to Friday, services have been added at 5.51am from Aberdare to Cardiff Central and at 6.08am from Merthyr Tydfil to Cardiff Central.
The new Sunday services are 9.22am Aberdare to Cardiff Central, 11.53am Aberdare to Cardiff Central, 5.53pm Aberdare to Cardiff Central and 7.53pm Aberdare to Cardiff Central
And in the opposite direction: 10.41am Cardiff Central to Aberdare, 4.41pm Cardiff Central to Aberdare and 6.41pm Cardiff Central to Aberdare.
There have been a few alterations to lines in the Valleys. The 6.31am Monday to Friday service that operates between Cardiff Central and Taffs Well will now terminate at Radyr.
The 6.53am Monday to Friday service that runs from Taffs Well to Coryton will now begin its journey at Radyr at 7.04am.
The 6.08am Monday to Friday from Rhymney to Barry Island will now leave Rhymney at the slightly later time of 6.14am and will also end its journey at Cardiff Central.
The 7.11am Monday to Friday service that runs from Cardiff to Aberdare will now run to Radyr without stopping. This means it will not call at stations including Cardiff Queen Street, Cathays and Llandaff.
Additionally, the 6.42am Monday to Friday service from Cardiff Central to Pembroke Dock will now depart from Cardiff Central at 6.39am and operate earlier to Bridgend.
The 7.45pm Cheltenham Spa to Maesteg Saturday service is no longer operating as a through service. Instead commuters will have to travel from Cheltenham Spa to Cardiff Central and from Cardiff Central to Maesteg.
The 11.36am Sunday service from Chester to Manchester Piccadilly will now depart from Llandudno Junction at 10.26am and stop at all stations on its journey to Chester.
