    Default Baldwins in Wales UK

    There is a little known gem of a narrow gauge railway in South Wales, UK.
    It is a 2ft gauge railway that features locos from around the world including American made locos.

    That little Baldwin looks very much at home there in Wales. The countryside is very much like Maine where the old 2-footers used to roam.

    The line is narrow gauge now. The original line was standard gauge Brecon and Merthyr Railway. The NG line terminates just short of Torpantau Tunnel. The tunnel is 666 yards long and the highest railway tunnel in Great Britain. Very steep inclines to the summit and a severe curve in the tunnel.
