entrance-01.jpg (163723 bytes)

The understated entrance to Severn Tunnel Junction station in Rogiet, South Wales. In Welsh, the station is known as Cyffordd Twnnel Hafren, which literally translates to "Junction Tunnel Severn" although the sign here spells the river name as "Hafron", an apparently archaic name; and omits an "n" from "Twnnel".

information-01.jpg (159869 bytes)

The information boards at the bottom of the footbridge at Severn Tunnel Junction station / gorsaf Cyffordd Twnnel Hafren in Rogiet, South Wales. The platform adjacent to the car park, where this photo was taken from, is disused and so access to and from all trains is via this stepped footbridge.
The portaloo is padlocked and thus presumably only for contractors or station staff (the station is manned only on weekday mornings).

station-fromroadbridge-01.jpg (163561 bytes)

Severn Tunnel Junction station / gorsaf Cyffordd Twnnel Hafren in Rogiet, South Wales viewed looking east from the road bridge a short distance west of the station. Platform 1, served by westbound trains, is on the right of the picture, with platforms 2 (trains towards Gloucester) and 3 (serivces to Bristol via the Severn Tunnel) to the right and left of the central island platform respectively. The leftmost platform is disused, while the edging stones suggest the brick building between platforms 2 and 3 may be built on the site of a former west-facing bay platform - the supports for the road bridge also look designed to enable this.
The signal gantry on the far right is for the the down bypass line, the sole remaining line from a once extensive marshalling yard.

vieweast-fromfootbridge-01.jpg (160798 bytes)

Looking east from the footbridge at Severn Tunnel Junction station / gorsaf Cyffordd Twnnel Hafren in Rogiet, South Wales. From right to left the lines and platforms visible are:
  • Down relief line (extreme right, far side of rightmost platform), not accessible to trains comming from the Severn Tunnel; not adjacent to a platform.
  • Platform 1, served by westbound trains from Gloucester and the Severn Tunnel. Services from the tunnel cross over the up line beyond the red singal in the middle distance.
  • Platform 2, served by eastbound trains towards Gloucester only.
  • Unnumbered, filled-in former east-facing bay platform (no track).
  • Platform 3. All eastbound trains headed to the Severn Tunnel must call at or pass this platform. Although there is a link from this line to the eastbound Gloucester Line, the state of the rails suggest it is not a common move.
  • Unnumbered, disused through platform. Presumably when this was operational it was used for eastbound services via the Severn Tunnel with the present platform 3 being used for westbound services from the tunnel.

vieweast-fromfootbridge-02.jpg (163149 bytes)

Looking east from the footbridge at Severn Tunnel Junction station / gorsaf Cyffordd Twnnel Hafren in Rogiet, South Wales. From right to left the lines visible are:
  • Down relief line (extreme right), not accessible to trains comming from the Severn Tunnel and not adjacent to a platform at the station.
  • Down main line. Served by westbound trains from Gloucester and the Severn Tunnel; platform 1 at the station. Services from the tunnel cross over the up line from left to right in the centre-right of the image.
  • Up Gloucester line (closest to signal). This line, platform 2 at the station, is used by trains heading easbound towards Gloucester. Although trains can access the Gloucester line from platform 3 at the station (curved track just beyond the signal) the state of the rails suggest this is not a common move.
  • Down line from tunnel (crosses over up Gloucester). In the current track layout, all trains heading west through the tunnel cross the eastbound Up Gloucester here to join the down main and call/pass platform 1 at the station.
  • Up line to London via Severn Tunnel, eastbound trains that have passed/called at platform 3 of the station (far left of photo, beneath green signal).
  • Down tunnel line goods loop (beneath red signal on extreme left).
Note that the arch on the left of the picture is not the mouth of the Severn Tunnel, but a road bridge giving access to Caldicot station, mile from Severn Tunnel Junction and visible in the middle difference on the right of the picture.

Looking east from the footbridge at Severn Tunnel Junction station / gorsaf Cyffordd Twnnel Hafren in Rogiet, South Wales. The platform on beneath the camera is disused, and looks to have been that way for some considerable time. The furthest left line is used by eastbound trains heading towards the Severn Tunnel, there is a route from this line to the eastbound track towards Gloucester but this looks to be used only very rarely.

The 1:90 gradient to the lowest point on the tunnel, beneath The Shoots shipping channel, can clearly be seen. From the end of the level section beneath the river, the tunnel rises at 1:100 up to the English side.

Looking east from the eastern end of platform 1 at Severn Tunnel Junction station / gorsaf Cyffordd Twnnel Hafren in Rogiet, South Wales. The track closest to the camera is the westound line towards Newport from both the Severn Tunnel and Gloucester, the track to the left is the eastbound line towards Gloucester, with the line to the Severn Tunnel the other side of the platform on the left. The rightmost line beyond the low vegetation is the start of the down relief line towards Newport.

vieweast-fromplatform1-02.jpg (162231 bytes)

Looking east from the eastern end of platform 1 at Severn Tunnel Junction station / gorsaf Cyffordd Twnnel Hafren in Rogiet, South Wales. The track junction in the centre of the picture is where westbound trains from the Severn Tunnel cross the eastbound line towards Gloucester to join the down main line towards Newport from Gloucester.
On the left by the 75mph speed restriction is the trailing end of the junction allowing westbound trains on the line towards the Severn Tunnel to access the Gloucester line, although this does not look regularly used.
On the extreme right of the photograph, by the low-level position light signal, is the start of the down relief line that bypasses the station. It presumably would have given access to the extensive marshalling yards on this side of the station, although nothing of this now remains.
The blue visile to the right of centre in the middle distance is the eastbound platform of Caldicot station, a mere mile from Severn Tunnel Junction station.

Looking east from the eastern end of platform 2 at Severn Tunnel Junction station / gorsaf Cyffordd Twnnel Hafren in Rogiet, South Wales. Platform 3 to the left is significantly longer than platform 2, as there used to be a bay platform between the two which would presumably have connected to the eastbound line towards Gloucester in the vicinity of the signal.

The western end of platforms 2 (left) and 3 at Severn Tunnel Junction station / gorsaf Cyffordd Twnnel Hafren in Rogiet, South Wales. The large edging stones and clear line in the tarmac suggest very strongly that there used to be a west-facing bay platform here, that this would line up with the bridge makes this even more likely.
