GW/WR Pannier Tank on Rhos Colliery branch, at Penybanc Colliery, near Pantyfynnon
View SE from the A483 road, west of Pantyfynnon on the Llandilo - Pontadulais/Llanelly (ex-GW&LNW) section of the Central Wales Line. The apparently wooded hill on the right has since disappeared, as it was a colliery tip since landscaped. In the distance are the 900-1,000 ft. mountains on the far side of the River Loughor, Mynydd Bettws and Graig fawr. The locomotive is 'modern' GW-design '1600' class 0-6-0T No. 1655 (built 1/55, withdrawn 7/65).
