So I phone Traveline a few hours back to enquire about Cardiff > Newport trains on New Years Day - the woman quickly says "there are no trains". But then upon checking train timetables, they are running?
The First Great Western site even says this:
A revised level of service will operate on many route between Christmas and New Year, particularly on Monday 28, Tuesday, 29, Wednesday 30, Thursday 31 December 2009 and Friday 1 January 2010.
Some early morning trains throughout the network will be cancelled and in addition:
* Line improvement works between Bristol and Newport will result in trains being diverted, retimed or provided by rail replacement coaches. Journey times will be extended as a result of these works.
Errr? I'm half tempted to stay in now! :(
