Fishguard Harbour, the nearest station to Dinas, is the end of the line. Your only options are to take the ferry to Ireland, at 2.30 am or 2.30 pm, or go south towards Carmarthen. As there are only seven trains a day, I can’t recommend it for a conventional train spotter. But the area is nevertheless full of reminders of what used to be or might have been.
- There are the remnants of lines at abandoned quarries, at Rosebush and Porthgain
- There’s still a line to the old Royal Navy Armaments depot at Trecwn where copper was used for the narrow gauge railway in order to avoid the danger of sparks
- There’s a line that was engineered and almost completed before being abandoned at the out break of the 1st World War. The bridges and embankments can still be seen
- The route of the old North Pembrokeshire and Fishguard Railway dating from 1876 and finally closed in 1949 is still visible in places
- There are abandoned halts (request stops) and stations on the Fishguard line.
So there is plenty of interest for railway enthusiasts in the area. You will even find that local farmers have put old freight wagons to good use as a feed-stores for the mountain sheep.
