Blaenau Ffestiniog

The 'new' central station and interchange in Blaenau Ffestiniog celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2012. This view from the boarded crossing looks west and just beyond the far bridge the two railways diverge. The Ffestiniog narrow gauge trains swing left to head down to Porthmadog while the Conwy Valley line trains pass the old LNWR station (closed in 1982) and turn sharp right to go north past the slate tips and into the two mile long tunnel to Roman Bridge. 150277 waits to return to Llandudno.
