29.08.12 Pembroke Dock 142.074

End of the line as it has been for many years. On 29 August 2012, I revisited the branch for the first time in 29 years. The two platforms are still present, albeit one out of use for many years and the station building is now a pub and restaurant. Awaiting departure is 142.074 on 2E21, 15:09 Pembroke to Swansea. Whilst the normal two hourly services are nothing more than these units, the station does see one through HST to and from London Paddington on Saturdays in the summer season.

 

Passengers can transfer here on foot or by taxi (no buses) to connect with Irish Ferries sailings to Rosslare. The line did continue to the docks for freight traffic but closed in 1969.
