"I very much welcome initiatives such as this which not only promote local public transport services but also the attraction of Rural Wales as a whole.  The Cambrian Coast line's new Gazer will contribute to a greater understanding and appreciation of our country's outstanding coastal and mountain scenery.
"This new initiative is another example of how the Cambrian Railways Partnership are delivering projects that support the wider economy in an area where tourism is an important industry."
