Prototype for everything corner.

Superficially yes, but shortening the distances allows a more intensive service to be operated on the branch.

It's all down to business needs/traffic flows.

If you ran this formation at a show I think you would soon be put right! Many thanks to Peter Morris for the photo….

Not sure. I assumed out near Hereford direction when I first saw it but I don’t recognise the location at all.

It's the junction at Abergwili, just north of Carmarthen on the line to Aberystwyth. The train has come from Aber, picking up milk tanks en-route. The formation on the right is the former Llanelly Railway (later L&NWR) to Llandeilo.

Spot on! Original Caption says it’s the final train from Aberystwyth on 20.2.65 but Other sources suggest the through route had gone by then …. Trains from Carmarthen to Lampeter or Strata Florida only, bus from there to Aber following flood wash out at Llanilar. If so then it Makes the 2V headcode interesting as whilst Aber was LMR by that time IIRC the regional boundary was at Llanrhystud Road (Llanfarian) and everything south of there was WR.

 

Struggled to get the geography of that junction but of course Llanelli is east of Carmarthen so the right hand fork makes total sense. Should have remembered that as have fished at Nantgerredig a few times with the track bed just up the road.

Very good boxed condition. Professionally resprayed and weathered. May be one or two chips in paintwork on front and side. See photo for details. Please note that I do NOT accept refunds.

Yes but you can see they were forerunners in design for early rail mounted coaches, so the natural progression is to present day rail coaches and carriages.

Modern day buses, both double and single deck, are developments of original horse drawn buses and trams:sungum:

That's not a bus, it's a coach!

 

Ribble Motor Services had some vehicles classified as DP - dual purpose - so they could be used on longer distance coach or shorter stage service bus duty........ And in NBC days, they carried the coach livery on the upper half (white) and the bus livery of red on the lower half.

Damaged a set of Serck shutters on your 47?  Never mind:

 

When Sundays Were Great Part 6

 

And the track in the background, opposite the platform ends, looks like a bad baseboard join.
