SO4918 : The remains of the last train through Welsh Newton?

taken 6 years ago, near to Welsh Newton, Herefordshire, Great Britain

The remains of the last train through Welsh Newton?
The remains of the last train through Welsh Newton?
In the foreground are several pieces of metal in the shape of railway buffers.
The green wheels in the background are from farming machinery. The notice claims that these are
"The remains of the last train through Welsh Newton" but there was never a railway passing through the hamlet. Is this a local joke, or is there more to it than I've found out so far?
Located alongside the A466 at the edge of the village hall. LinkExternal link
