The railroad has written the history of many countries and this is no exception Wales. The country roads are narrow so a century ago you can imagine that the roads were still pretty much impassable. Amidst this scenario, the railway provided from its beginnings a good means of transport for moving passengers and cargo. Many stations still survive. Some of them are still in full activity, others are quieter but still retain the charm from when they were built. This is the case of these photos. They were taken in a remote corner of Wales, in a small traditional mining village. The railway line from this area long ago fell into decay, but this railroad effected several trips a day to the mines. It's basically a tourist attraction (which therefore has a fairly high price), but it serves to recall the charm of an era in which the hand of man broke the mighty mountains to carry trains and progress to the remotest geographical corners.
