    Some of the dirty f@ckers can't keep their stomach contents down for 5 minutes while a toilet is occupied , let alone 40/50 minutes on the last one back on a Friday night 🤣

    I think the tram idea is a bit daft tbh, the ride quality is going to be extremely lively at speed. coupled with the lack of facilities it's going to be a bit of a shitty service for anyone coming in from the valleys. Hoping I'm proved wrong, but I'm not convinced by what I've seen

    Yeah I'm positive kids won't piss their pants.

    As for grown ups, I can have a drink and piss before I get on the train after a day/night out but its not to say I won't need to go again on the train, but could probably hold it for 25 mins from Cardiff. I can't see everyone having the luxury of a semi decent bladder. The over 50s on here will be pissing out the windows.

    Ely must have the best bus service in the area. Must be a bus on its way into the city centre every 5 minutes.

    There's a guy in my row at the CCS who can't last 20 minutes, you can almost set your watch by him going of to the loo before 20 mins on the clock, he comes back in but leaves at least 5 mins before HT, then late for second half, then out again around 65 mins, then back...the leaves before FT.
    Hope he doesn't have to travel far.

    why would the residents of S'mel need a train station when they are still in the 18th century?

    I think I read a while back that the plan is to install toilets on every platform 🤔 😅

    Yes I read that too, was a while back it was published. Can you imagine the disruption to trips back home though hopping on and off trains.

    People manage on the London Underground and I'm pretty sure there aren't many toilets on the trains there.

    Its kit, they would be used to the transport. Anyone who uses it, kids or whoever would be accustomed to it.

    We've had years of toilets on trains, asking the locals to suddenly change isn't just going to work because they want it to. It won't go smoothly.

    Now I'm as guilty of assuming people are dummies as anyone, but even I'd give them the benefit of the doubt on this one.

    I think it's just a case of getting tanked before KO and at HT.

    Travel on a train to Barry to and from the valleys in the summer holidays
    Or late on a weekend.

    I'll stick with my comment 😂👍

    This wont be repeated in South Wales, albeit on a much smaller scale, will it?

    Not many people make 45+ minute trips on the tube. Most valley lines trips are commutes into Cardiff from the valleys.

    Iíll wager all this is completed before they finish the Heads of the Valley roadworks between Abergavenny and Bryn Mawr.
