My confidence in the writers' knowledge of the prototype disappeared when I read that the Cambrian Coast Express ran to Aberystwyth, and returned to Machynlleth for a second time BEFORE continuing up the coast line. Even a bit of basic research would have revealed that the train used to split into 2 portions at Machynlleth-1 going to Aber, the other to Pwllheli. The return portions joined up again at Dovey Junction. The information is in the books recommended for further reading!

Obviously I haven't got as much knowledge of the Cambrian Railways as yourself (Actually, I have never been "there" in the flesh. My knowledge comes from books , etc. and the "MSTS" Train Sim version of the coast route. This is unfortunatley incomplete as regards the Afon Wen and Barmouth Junction lines. Though I did do some research (mainly maps and books) with a view to modifying the route.).

One movement that you haven't mentioned is the Princess Coronation Class that "ran" through Afon Wen.


One day I'll get to Barmouth, and see that bridge for real. The coast line is very scenic, especially as the sun sets! (And especially from the footplate of a 4575 tank. MSTS version.)

(The MSTS Barmouth Bridge has sheep on the walkway, by the way. What's the toll for a sheep?)
