We invite you to a talk by David Edwards about the work of the Heart of Wales Line Development Company Ltd which is a Community Business Unit Trailblazer.

David's talk will explain the work of the company and describe some of its current schemes, such as their new caboose.  The rail franchise for the Wales and Borders area is due for renewal soon, and David will also talk about how the company is working to get the best from that process.
