A disgusting, weird and sick freak has claimed that bringing back the Mumbles Train would NOT be a good idea, we can reveal.
In a dramatic twist in a group discussion which crossed a number of Swansea history/memory Facebook pages, obnoxious Pete Bowen blurted out his ‘opinion’ that bringing back the Mumbles Train and the slip bridge won’t actually solve all our problems.
Probable loner Bowen said: “I just struggle to see how an old bridge and a train that no one went on in its later years would improve congestion, the environment or terrorism.
“I agree it’s a lovely memory, I’ve seen the nostalgic images of people hanging off it in the 1900s like a crowded Indian train and it made me smile out of the corner of my mouth for just under a second. But would I back digging up the front and investing millions in bringing it back? No, not really.
“People use cars and bikes now, plus the LC2 is there so there’s no station. Nobody can really be arsed to go on the land train they have which beeps it’s way up and down the front, so in what way could the return of the Mumbles Train add any value?
The snide prick added: “I see genuine concerns being raised online about traffic, parking and drug use before someone says ‘we should’ve never have gotten rid of the Mumbles train’, or ‘we should bring the Mumbles train back’. Twenty odd people agree and then the issue’s closed.
“How’s that helpful?”
Active poster on Swansea history pages, Theresa Connell, said: “Once, a long time ago and before I or anyone else who’s posting was alive, life was amazing and it was because there was a Mumbles Train and a slip bridge.
“I look at that train going and back and forth, teeming with holidaymakers in petticoats, and I know that’s the solution to all of our problems.
“What this depraved lunatic needs to understand is that by going backwards, we can erase all of our problems and just hop on a train or cross a bridge, like when you do a System Restore on your laptop.
“He should keep his snowflake opinions to himself and allow us to bask in our former glories.”
