The railway track bed noted by John Ball is now a well signposted nature
trail. It is a wonderful walk and cycle track across the bog, from the halt
where milk in churns used to be loaded, to the site of Strata Florida
station. One of the few times that I feel my age is when I recall taking the
train on this line in my teens.
