Big Pit Mining Museum

You can see from this picture that Big Pit Halt is readily visible from the Big Pit mining museum. The branch and halt were built to advertise the rest of the railway when they found out that tourists came to Blaenavon to go underground in the mining museum, but did not know that the steam railway was there!
