View southward, towards Pantyffynnon, Pontadulais and Llanelli/Swansea: the SW end of the Central Wales (now 'Heart of Wales') line, which was ex-GWR from Llandilo, Joint GW&LNW thence to Llandovery and LNW from Craven Arms. The Class 153 DMU is northbound from Llanelli, Central Wales trains to/from Swansea having been diverted via Llanelli since Pontadulais - Swansea (Victoria, LNW) was closed 27/6/64. The station was called 'Tirydail' until 9/60, then 'Ammanford & Tirydail' until 7/5/73.

Crossing Amman Valley railway near site... (C) Ben Brooksbank
View northward, across ex-GWR Pantyfynnon (to left) - (to right) Brynamman (West) branch, which closed to passengers 18/8/58, Garnant station having been about 200 yards to the left. The line was closed to freight officially in 1988 after closure Of Abernant Colliery, but in 1994 it was probably still in use by trains removing the vast stockpile of anthracite from Abernant. It was reopened in 2009 for bringing opencast coal from Tairgwaith and it seems that a passenger service may return under the auspices of the Swansea 9 Lines Movement. Behind is the Carmarthen Black Mountain range (Tair Carnisaf, 1,503 ft.).

Level crossing... (C) Hywel Williams
This level crossing's signs are looking quite modern - however it's about the only evidence that a railway used to cross this road! The road has obviously been resurfaced since the railway closed and careful examination revealed that the rails are still there - under the tarmac! On both sides, there was some healthy overgrowth - no train has travelled along this line for a long time.
