Aberystwyth and the Vale of Rheidol Railway
My trip to Aberystwyth involved three return journeys. The London to Birmingham leg on the always-awful Avanti West Coast. The tolerable but irritating chug along the mostly single-track Cambrian line on some ex-British Rail rolling stock. And then there was the social event on the penultimate day of the conference: a free trip on the Vale of Rheidol Railway from Aber to Devil's Bridge and back. (There was also the tube I got on on the way home when I'd just learned the Queen had died, but that doesn't count.)
Even though I got wet, the rain meant we were blessed with dramatic skies and several rainbows. I took my cameras (including some Portra 160 because I'm one of those film tossers now) and here are the results from the week.
