Location: Heart of Wales train line

The Heart of Wales 150th anniversary celebrations kicked off on March 23rd, with stalwart supporters travelling all the way from Shrewsbury to Swansea. Some of us went from Knighton to Llandrindod, the audience for the songs was great and appreciative, and there was a good conversation with guard John on the way back which gave some context and history.
