Vale of Rheidol level crossing (C) John Lucas The Vale of Rheidol Railway crosses the A4120 at Llanbadarn Fawr by level crossing. The 'main line' crossing is just a few yards along the road and can be seen behind the row of cars.
Level crossing maintenance (C) John Lucas A network rail crew is maintaining the Vale of Rheidol Railway crossing at Llanbadarn Fawr. As the V of R is not part of the main line network, it is unclear (to me) why Network Rail staff are doing this. Possibly, as it is a public crossing, the V of R is obliged to have Network Rail do the work on safety grounds.
