A train for thought. This image may inspire someone for the future
No notes were sent in with this photograph of a passenger train near the Lidl food store at Neath. It is on the track from the Dulais valley and is thought to be a tour excursion. It does, however, show the closeness of the railway line to a shopping area and how easily a boarding platform could be built there for a METRO TRAIN service, which would reduce road congestion and pollution. Above all, it shows that the line can handle passenger traffic.
At Neath Abbey the rail track is just as close to the Tesco Extra store and the remains of the Abbey heritage site, now under the care of Cadw.
