Leaving Dolgoch, the second passing loop is soon reached at Quarry Siding and
you can see the typical wooded surrounds of the locality with the farms and
animal stock visible over the other side of the valley. As you travel up the
valley, cars keep pace with you on the local B4405 and traffic jams can even
take place behind slow moving lorries.
A further two miles eventually brings the train into the Abergynolwyn station
complex, clinging to the side of the mountain, before heading off up the old
mineral line extension towards Nant Gwernol.
Passing the Forestry crossing, with working flashing warning lights, the train
passes the old watering point at Ty Dwr where the sound of the gushing water
can be heard. Further on its way up the line passing the site of the Old Incline
Winding House with the remnants of the winding drum still visible in the hedgerow
Look out for Abergynolwyn village as the train rounds “Amen Corner” and
“ Big Bend” before it runs into the final station at the Nant Gwernol
terminus with its forestry walks and the sound of its waterfalls
