Dear Wil

Have any of our Councilors visited towns which have train services which are run by enthusiasts?

They are vibriant and commercialy sucessful.

For a start why not operate a train from Llanerchymedd to Amlwch?

This would involve minimum bridge work as I think there are more road bridges over the track than rail bridges over. There has been considerable expenditure at Llanerchymedd in repairing the original station buldings and the construction of a new meeting place and cafe adjacent.

The council carpark at the rear of Cliff Davis' garage, where the rail track runs along side it, this could be the site of a temporary Amlwch Station.

Yes, I hear you say that the train would cross a road without gates or barriers, but this happens on the regular Scotish West coast line on its way to Malaig without problems. They mansge with a flashing light and a bell.

Why not try it in 2012?. If not just for the summer months,it would bring people into both villages,into shops, stores and cafes.

There could be a mini bus service at reasonable cost up to Parys Mountain and Amlwch Port.

Some expert operating staff would be required but the majority would be volunteers.

A third of the money spent(sorry 'wasted')at the port carpark would have put the train into use.

Sincerely

Leslie Lord

Put Life back into Anglesey
by: Anonymous

I have lived here on Anglesey (Bull Bay) for 45 years and met many a visitor from many parts of the world, the one thing that they say how lovely the place is and what suprise's them is that there is little or nothing in the way of tea shops (their words) or toilets to cater for their needs. I would not like to see the place become too Blackpooly. My children said that Anglesey is a fantastic place to grow up but once you are a teenager then there is nothing here for them and even less in the way of work when you are older. Their talents are taken with them over the boarder and its lost to Anglesey.
