It is also the point where a short lane will take you to one of the stations of the Brecon Mountain Railway. This is a narrow gauge railway however bicycles can be carried on request. See www.breconmountainrailway.co.uk for more information.

Pontsticill to Pontsarn
Leaving the Dam of the Pontsticill Reservoir and the Brecon Mountain Railway behind, we drop down the hill. The Water Treatment works are on the right. Left at the junction and after going under the railway bridge turn right off the road into a traffic free section which takes us through to Pontsarn.
This is the former Taf Fechan mineral railway.
