Odd - I didn't thing Arriva were due to run any trains in Wales (or the borders) on 14th 20th or 21st October

From Wales Online

Hundreds of people are planning to attend a party to celebrate the end of the Arriva Trains Wales franchise next month, according to a Facebook event.

The event, labelled 'Celebrate the end of Arriva', invites commuters to gather at Cardiff Central Railway Station between 10pm and 1am on Saturday, October 13.

"The end of an era. The end of Arriva," is says on the event page.

"The clocks are ticking. The countdown is on. Assemble at Central Station for a national celebration. BYOB."

More than 390 people have confirmed their attendance on Facebook, while 1,700 others have said they are interested in going to the event.

The mark of true pedantry of course is asking what a bus is doing running along "sections of the line". Would it not be better running along nearby roads rather than on the lines themselves?
