The views continue to amaze me, Tom.
Tom Wilson: It was a wonderful morning for the trip, Ray - Wales is usually pretty wet!

Even the crossing point is a long way down there Tom!
Tom Wilson: Yes, I guess it must be about half way - and with that gradient you can see why rack and pinion was favoured!
it is an amazing experience I should think, fingers crossed the loco in front doesn't run away with itself smile
Tom Wilson: I guess they used a rack and pinion method to avoid just that, Brian.
