Returning stranded trains to the main rail network

The trains had been stranded due to the damage to the track caused by the storms. There was no way to get them out, other than by road. What with the line closure further north due to the work on the Briwet Bridge and the damage along the coast further south, the whole route from Machynlleth to Pwllheli now consists of replacement buses. :(
