|Harlech Station on the Cambrian Coast line, as viewed from the ramparts of Harlech Castle.|
|Harlech Level Crossing (also as viewed from the ramparts of Harlech Castle) is interesting because the single track railway crosses the road at an extremely acute angle and it not only contains a road junction but also three houses within its barriers! The three barriers are full road width but each leave one footpath unrestricted. There are therefore additional warning lights on the footpaths within the barriers. The outer parallelogram of the yellow box shows clearly, but there are faded yellow markings within.|
Arriva Trains Wales 158830 approaching the level crossing and then station with the 10:10 Machynlleth to Pwllheli service, one of only three trains in each direction on the line on a Sunday. This is the first Down working.
|The Cambrian Coast line north of Harlech is straight for a bit before turns inland towards Tygwyn.|
