On 29th August 1975 a dmu heads south from Towyn station on the Cambrian coast past a fully functioning goods yard & Great Western lower-quadrant semaphore signalled loops. A coal wagon is being manually unloaded into a truck on the left & a loading gauge guide still hangs delicately above the siding on the far left. The train will swing round to the right around the mountain ahead to run along the coast of Cardigan Bay & to the next stop at Aberdovey before crossing the River Dovey estuary and joining the line from Aberystwyth at Dovey Junction. The steps on the left & the board crossing over the tracks are to allow the signalman to walk over & exchange the train staff with the driver of the dmu. Towyn signal box is just out of shot to the right.
