The Welshpool and Llanfair in British Railways days
On Wednesday I travelled on the Welshpool and Llanfair Light Railway. The line is now operated by enthusiasts, but after nationalisation it was run by British Railways until its original closure in 1956.
This photograph shows a freight train in British Railways days (1950). By then there were no passenger services - they ended as early as 1931.
