More on Llanrhaiadr Mochnant

What did we do before Google maps?

Here is the site of Llanrhaiadr Mochnant station

The extent of the station equates to the rough field, with the route of the railway still showing in the tree line and the dark line across the wheat field. The coal yard building is still there and still in use.

I've now mapped the 1912  1:2,500 OS map on to it which should then let me calculate all the major dimensions, and also help in reconciling the various photos. Something I've found particularly problematic is the relationship between the good shed and the main station building.

It is all looking good for a 12ft by 2ft 6in plan.
