A Brief History

In the early years of the millennium, the Welsh National Assembly wanted a quality service linking North Wales with Cardiff. Not that anybody would want to make the 5 hour journey by rail from Holyhead to the Welsh capital. Suitable rolling stock was however acquired in the form of redundant BR carriages, and when Arriva Trains Wales looked around for a small fleet of locomotives to provide haulage, they came up with a small fleet of Class 67s, all at enormous cost to the taxpayer. The service still operates twice daily, but the irony is that most of the route - between Chester and Hereford - is in England rather than Wales! A real political mix-up! Your writer has used the service, as it provides one of the few opportunities for loco-haulage behind a real train in this country. And, if you can afford to stomp up for first class, you get a traditional breakfast in the manner afforded by the railways in the past. Whether it is the Great English Breakfast, or the Great Welsh Breakfast, your writer cannot remember!
