Extra trains for Six Nations next weekend
Great Western Railway will put on nearly 20,000 extra seats for rugby fans leaving Cardiff following Wales’ Six Nations match with Scotland next weekend. GWR will operate two eight-car Electrostars – running half-hourly shuttle services between Cardiff Central and Newport – as part of its plan to help disperse crowds after the Principality Stadium fixture on Saturday, February 12.
Train services will, however, be busy and a queuing system will be in operation at the station after the game. Customers are advised to be prepared to stagger their journey time and to keep checking social media for the latest information on queuing times. And in a change to previous years, fans travelling to Newport after the game will be asked to queue on the square in front of Cardiff Central station, rather than from Riverside Car Park.
