A disgusting weird sick freak has claimed that bringing back the Mumbles Train would be a terrible idea, we can reveal.
In a dramatic twist in a group discussion which crossed a number of Swansea history/memory Facebook pages, Rob Gray blurted out an ‘opinion’ that bringing back the Mumbles Train and the slip bridge won’t actually solve all our problems.
Disturbed Rob 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’s made partially smile and wish I was there.
“But people have cars now, the LC2 is there so there’s no station and nobody can even be arsed to go on the car train they have which beeps it’s way up and down the front.
“For years I’ve seen 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 the issue’s closed.
“How’s that helpful?”
Fellow online poster Theresa Connell said: “Once, a long time ago and before I or anyone else who’s posting was alive, life was amazing.
“I look at the train going and back and forth and I think ‘that looks tip-top’. Case closed.
“What people like this twat ‘Rob’ need to understand, is that once everything was amazing according to the pictures and we should just go back nearly two centuries to achieve that level greatness again.
“It’s not rocket science, so keep your progressional left wing and deranged opinions to yourself.”
