P-06-1179 Paint the trains on the mid Wales line to resemble caterpillars to encourage tourism



This petition was submitted Geoff Hill, having collected a total of 186 signatures.


Text of Petition:                     

To boost tourism in mid Wales have the two carriage trains painted to look like caterpillars. Children from Birmingham and the West Midlands would love to go on the caterpillar line to the coast. It would also bring a smile to everybody who saw them going down the track something much needed in these difficult times


Additional Information:

It’s an easy win for tourism which could get national and international press coverage. You could have competitions to name the caterpillar on each train which could be different paint jobs.
