Correct Merthyr Imp! Your forum name suggests a proximity to the BMR.

What a cracking little railway. Unusual rolling stock and fantastic scenery. 

It's actually a few years since I last visited it, but I think that photo was taken near Dolygaer at the point where the BMR deviates slightly from the original formation so as to avoid a sailing club or some such.

The fascination to me is seeing how it fits into the former Brecon & Merthyr infrastructure and viewing what remains of that and its connections, especially at the Pant end and at Pontsticill. E.g. this view of the old Pant station which I took about seven years ago.

No, but not hugely distant from the place ...

Huddersfield then?

I think the quiz has petered.  If you were to think of a healthy parent and an academic out for an afternoon's 'sport', you may be headed towards the places.

So No. 4 must be Motherwell?

I thought there was far too much daylight for that to be New Street. I was there on Thursday and noticed how little daylight has filtered down to the platforms.

The ends of the platforms are in the open.
