Mystic Eye predicts cuts to Welsh CRPs funding

And lo, so it came to pass....

This from the BBC, way back on the 3rd of February 2010:

A group promoting rail travel on rural routes has criticised the withdrawal of £10,000 funding by Arriva Trains Wales (ATW) as "ridiculous".

Meanwhile this from Railway Eye, way, way back on the 5th of August 2009:

The (ACoRP) memo makes the point even clearer by saying:

It is (TOC's name REDACTED) opinion however, that some CRPs are turning into lobbying groups (which they are not prepared to support) whilst others have effectively run their course, having succeeded in their aim to secure a future for the line.

Well just fancy that!
