Yesterday we took a stroll down the trackbed of the old Duffryn Llynfi and Porthcawl railway to the site of Cefn Junction where the signal box remains. The signal box now houses an exhibition based upon the industries of rail, iron, coal and brick which once surrounded Cefn Junction. Alongside the signal box are a few artefacts from the iron industry including a panel on which was displayed a photograph of how the scene looked around 1910. I thought I’d take a snap of this photo and then take a modern picture to compare the peaceful scene of today with the industry of 100 years ago.
