Bronwydd Arms

The Gwili Railway runs over a section at the southern end of the former Carmarthen to Aberystwyth line that closed in 1964. Here is Class 117 51347 waiting to depart over the line's southern extension, sadly not all the way to Carmarthen as the destination blind would have us believe, but just to the outskirts of the town at the new southern terminus at Abergwili Junction, that opened on 1st July 2017. This d.m.u. was withdrawn from BR service in 1993 and in 1994 found its way to the Mangapps Railway Museum in Essex before going to the Colne Valley Railway at Castle Hedingham in 1995. It then moved on to the Nene Valley Railway in 1997 before finally moving to the Gwili Railway in 2009 where hopefully it has now found a permanent home. Seen here on 9th June 2018.
