With the award of the franchise from October to Keolis/Amey, I have updated the board title:

Quote
South Wales local journeys
Great Western within South Wales; also Arriva and KeolisAmey

Although "South" remains in the title, no problem with central mid and north Wales if they crop up, or with the franchise's services that cross the border.

I suspect the franchise name won't include 'KeolisAmey' so likely have to amend the thread blurb again.  Wink

Bit of a mouthful of consonants in that. CymRail works better, but does set an evident pronunciation puzzle for many non-Welsh visitors.

Name change again - to reflect franchise name which wasn't known when we last changed!
