Beeching rail cut reversed 46 years later

The train to Ebbw vale left from Cardiff this morning for the first time in 46 years

So that means the last one was in 1962

Beeching was an MP much like today's MPs with his snout in a trough, he was associated with the road building industry who were desperate to build roads for the government to get the juicy contracts.

The public transport system that Beeching destroyed has led to a wholly crap dependence on the car but of course they didnt bother about global warming back then.
