Ebbw Vale trains returning to Newport. - Posted: October 13, 2021 - 5:34 PM Quote and reply
When passenger services returned to the Ebbw Vale Line in 2008 they ran to/from Cardiff instead of the more geographically logical Newport. Sections of single track made it difficult to have both Cardiff and Newport services and in order to alleviate this doubling of certain parts got the go-ahead and track was laid, but not connected up, perhaps over 10 years ago.
Branch Line News reports, backed up by RTT/OTT, that Newport to Cross Keys, and in some cases beyond, services are to start with the forthcoming December timetable change. Newport has been used during perturbations and planned engineering work.
