Did the Tarka Line to Barnstaple in 2017. Not much to see now of the railway bridge but a chap in the local museum pointed out to us where it ran. IIRC, the bankside abutment(s) may still be in evidence.

I've no idea where it is but it appears to be the antidote to colourisation, so to speak. Isn't fashion confusingly restless!

Cardiff Bay old station building. I believe it's currently being renovated/repurposed and the line is due to be extended a couple of hundred metres closer to the bay itself.

That was a useful footbridge. Pity it has gone.

Those car flats look as if they're going through the Severn Tunnel to avoid the ferry. Pilning?

What a great picture  Cheesy

Semaphores, signalbox, carflats, cars and 6-cars worth of Swindon Cross-Country DMU heading to Cardiff.  A Birmingham (Snow Hill) to Cardiff General via Honeybourne service, I'd like to think.

Made my morning much more cheerful, to see this

That service would have been routed via Chepstow.

It looks Midland-ish. Island platform. Trent?
