Courtybella Junction

This headshunt for a steel loading point (Alphasteel, IIRC) used to be near the Western end of the loop line from Crindau past wharves on the Usk see image 39348 to the yard by Ebbw Junction. The lush vegetation reflects the above average rainfall in this area. View looks West; the precise location of Courtybella Junction would be perhaps 60 feet beyond the buffer stop. There was a temporary passenger station in this area in the mid-19th century.
