Delighted that things are returning to normal. The storm damage to the Cambrian Coast line seems unfairly to have taken a back seat to similar events elsewhere...

Looking at some of the pictures on the BBC report the engineering looks to have been on a similar scale to Dawlish and in very difficult conditions.  Well done to the team that have accomplished this.  I have only travelled on that line once and was surprised at how vital a link it was with schoolchildren converging on Harlech from both directions along with shoppers and other travellers.  A school football team from Barmouth used our service to get to Harlech to play a match.   Well done to all involved.
