Llandanwg Halt (Cambrian Coast Line)

The Inspiration:


Visiting the small village of Llandanwg near Barmouth in the 196os for a family holiday as a boy with my family was a memorable and happy experience.

I discovered steam trains running on the coastal part of the Cambrian Railway.

This was a revelation to me and I soon became fascinated with the TIMELESS BEAUTY of the line and how it meandered following the coastline, sometimes near sheer cliffs.

Watching the steam trains approach from a distance with there tell tail smoke.

A sight to behold.

Here we see 43xx Class GWR loco with passenger train approaching Llandanwg Halt, north of Barmouth
