Crime on Welsh railways has fallen. British Transport Police say there were one hundred and fifty fewer offences over the last year.
The biggest drop was in theft of railway property, including cable theft. But the number of sex offences rose.
Five Welsh railway stations are to benefit from a £24 million investment. Aberystwyth is one of the stations that will get a revamp. Improvements will include step-free access and a new forecourt.
The Budget document states that the UK Government "will continue to work with the Welsh Government to consider electrification of the Welsh Valley lines subject to value for money and an agreement on financing." Final decision this summer 2012 as part of the five year railway investment plan.
