Morlais Tunnel Junction Signal Box with a passing down passenger train. Unfortunately I can not make out much detail to tell if this is a train from Abergavenny or from Brecon. We do know that it is bound for Merthyr.

The GKN Dowlais works might just be in this image which mainly feature Morlais Hill Near Dowlais. The map reference given is about 24 miles away in Cardiff which is a clear error.
