|Just getting into the Town - there's the early morning road |
sweep so not the only one at work today!
|Just before you get to the railway station the familiar sight|
of Towy Works
I've always had a great fondness for Carmarthen and although its changed a bit in recent years there are still parts of it which immediately take me back to the good times of the mid 90s when I was a student there. In fact catching the train was a regular occurrence then especially when travelling back up North or to Swansea or Cardiff for the day. So this trip, despite the season was a bit of a throwback for me.

I took a few snaps of familiar places along the way as I'd left my in-laws house just after 7.20am. My train was around 8am but I wanted plenty of time to get there!
|Plenty of time for the train, it's 7.42am|
and the one before still hasn't left.
|Trains due in 10 minutes...yawn!|
|Carmarthen Station still has the red|
phone box I used to phone my mother to tell her
I'd been accepted on my HND Multimedia course
at CCTA back in 1995
|The Coracle Buffet - I've had a few early morning teas here|
over the years - not today though - it's closed!
|The train arrives...|
|It's actually cheaper to buy two separate tickets to get back|
to Newport from Carmarthen then get off the train at
Cardiff and catch the bus!
|I was glad of a nice cup of tea on the long |
journey which took over 2 hours
|Finally get to Cardiff station just before 10am, however just|
missed the bus to Newport so have to wait 40 minutes for the
next one... Happy Christmas!
