Old Railways of the Brecon Beacons Part One

Win a £10 Gift Voucher to the Location Below

The Brecon Beacons National Park once had lines going from East to West and North to South.  But most stations were closed in the 1960s and 1970s. The memories of these old train lines still live on today, with some local businesses re-using the old lines and station buildings for other things.  The pictures below is a prime example of this.  

The Question and Prize…. 

So we’re offering a £10 gift voucher when you visit the location for the person who can tell us the answer to the question below.  Please put your answer in the comment box, we will announce the winner at the end of the week.
★★ Can you name the year the train below was built? For the bonus of a free cup of coffee or tea, can you name the location it’s at?  ★★

If there is more than one correct answer, than the winner will be randomly picked.
