BREAKING NEWS ::: ::: Fishguard timetable goes live

Fishguard’s new rail timetable has been published – with no fanfare, and without any announcement from the Welsh Government or train companies.

National Rail Enquiries now carries details of the five extra daily services to and from Fishguard. Earlier today Fishguard Trains learnt that the Welsh Government’s preferred timetable has been officially validated by Network Rail. This is now confirmed as the times are now published online, and tickets are on sale for the new services.

As expected, the times are little changed from the draft put up for consultation by Welsh Government. One omission is the early morning “connecting” service from Carmarthen to Fishguard that involved a 1 hour 6 minute wait at Clarbeston Road. At least it is now clear that we are NOT getting five extra trains from Carmarthen to Fishguard, as promised by the former Transport Minister.

That said, what we are getting is much more than anyone in Pembrokeshire expected just five months ago. At last we have the official times, and now we can all start making our travel plans.

Fishguard Trains is pleased to be first to publish details of the official timetable, that runs from September 12th. All through services to and from Fishguard are shown in bold:
