Barmouth Station
A holiday crowd awaits the arrival of a train for Pwllheli in the summer of 1968. It was obviously a warm day and the children may well have spent it on the beach, but the gentleman in the jacket and hat was making no concessions to the weather. Heading in the other direction is a freight train which may have been conveying explosives from the works at Penrhyndeudraeth used mainly in the mining industry.
