SO5011 : Site of Monmouth Troy station and goods yard

taken 15 years ago, near to Monmouth/Trefynwy, Monmouthshire/Sir Fynwy, Wales

Site of Monmouth Troy station and goods yard
Site of Monmouth Troy station and goods yard
The running lines continued straight ahead between the platforms (which are still there) and through a short tunnel (likewise, but now bricked up) on the way to Pontypool Road. The goods yard was to the right of the shot where the small housing estate is now. The picture at LinkExternal link is a very rough equivalent of my shot. Monmouth Troy station building was dismantled piece by piece and reerected at Winchcombe on the preserved Gloucester & Warwickshire railway: see Dr Neil Clifton's SP0229 : Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway: Winchcombe station, even though he incorrectly locates the original site as Ross on Wye!
