Llandanwg

Two passengers waiting for the train to Pwllheli as a MetCam 101 diesel unit arrives at Llandanwg on the Cambrian Coast Line in July 1980 with apologies for the slightly grainy image, taken from my original print. As a teenager on a family holiday in north Wales in August 1965, we stayed in a caravan at Llandanwg and there was still a large running-in board here proclaiming 'Llandanwg Halt', but the term 'halt' was abolished by BR during the 1970s when even the tiniest of halts, such as this one, overnight became stations. On a revisit here many years later in 2016, the standard BR sign seen here had also been replaced by a smaller but somewhat smarter sign - but still minus the word 'halt'. The platform had been resurfaced too. See image 17936.
