At long last the extension of the Welsh Highland Railway from the south has begun. On the 22nd October the fence came down at Penymount and work began on the road crossing. By the following day the rails were in place and the first train for over 60 years passed over the crossing. By the middle of the week the rails had reached the second crossing at Cynfal.
At the moment the trackwork has a temporary appearance as the steel sleepers to be used are presently on their way from India and will not arrive until later next month.
