Last train to Cefn Onn
Cefn Onn Halt used to be one of my favourite spots for a bit of quiet contemplation. Hidden in a deep dark cutting and only accessible by foot, this tiny wayside stop was situated next to the long tunnel that took the railway under Caerphilly Mountain.
This photo was taken as the last train pulled out of the station (no-one got off as usual), its red tail lamp disappearing into the curve of the tunnel.
Coming back to the scene ten years later I was disheartened to see that the station had been abandoned and the tranquility of the cutting destroyed by a noisy new motorway with much of the surrounding countryside now buried under a 'prestige new development'.
