The Welsh Government Rail Unit has confirmed a timetable error, drawn to their attention by Fishguard Trains. We queried the morning train from Carmarthen at 9:00 that leaves Whitland at 9:04.
They now say “there is indeed an error here. It should be: 0850 off Carmarthen with a split at Whitland for the 0900hrs to Pembroke Dock and 0904hrs to Fishguard Harbour.”
Here is the full corrected westbound timetable:
|Clarbeston Rd arr||6.27
|Clarbeston Rd dep||6.16||7.33||9.19||11.31||18.07||19.54||01.02|
That looks like the 8:50 from Carmarthen to Fishguard will be another through train from Cardiff, departing 6:42.
Fishguard Trains will look further into through service question. The government’s timetable consultation does not spell out what is proposed. That is odd, as there seem to be several long-distance services lurking in the timings – all of them good news – and we need to know!
Meanwhile, the Rail Unit thanks us for pointing out the error.
Keep checking the times …
