Trackwork at Capel Bangor, Vale of Rheidol Railway
This is the western end of the passing loop at Capel Bangor. The spur to the right leads to the shunting neck which provides access to the rolling stock shed in the station yard. As these tracks form part of the passenger running lines, both of these points has an 'FPL' (facing point lock) which has to be engaged so as to ensure that the point doesn't open when a train is running over it.
