Big Pit Mining Museum

Not every preserved railway has doubled its number of stations in the last year or two. This recently-built halt is visible from Big Pit museum, making it harder for visitors to the former coal mine to be ignorant of the steam railways existence. Having said that, services from Furnace Sidings to this platform are usually diesel powered, whereas the main line service from Whistle Inn to Blaenavon High Level is normally steam - hauled see image 47060. This is similar to the dual services from Lydney Junction to Norchard and Parkend on the Dean Forest Railway.
