    I saw this item while on holiday in North Wales last week. My initial though is that the proposal hasn't been thought through clearly. The nuclear power station and its visitor centre closed many years ago. From personal observation, most of the local bus services were not heavily loaded, so there is a limited market for public transport. Doing a search on Trawsfynydd comes up with lots of Holiday cottages and references to the decommissioned magnox power station.

    It's only reinventing the Festiniog and Blaenau which sold out to the GWR in the 1870's.

    Good luck to the person behind the project, he'll need it!

    Cheers, Neil
