SS5398 : Llandilo Junction

taken 10 years ago, near to Llwynhendy, Carmarthenshire/Sir Gaerfyrddin, Great Britain

Llandilo Junction
Llandilo Junction
This is the junction where the Heart of Wales line departs from the West Wales Line. It's obvious from the rust on the left line that this railway is predominantly run as a single track line. Some goods traffic also travels along this line, branching off just south of Pontardulais.

In the distance, just after the junction, some strange arches have recently been constructed. This turned out to be a prefabricated tunnel, which presumably was lifted over the line when it wasn't being used! SS5398 : New tunnel at Llandilo Junction

The spelling of the junction's name is probably a throwback from when welsh spellings were approximated to English; it should probably be Llandeilo junction, but Llandilo is the spelling in not only ancient and modern maps but also in railway documentation.
