    The former wooden level crossing gates (4) at Bronwydd Arms, Gwili are for sale on ebay. This is a sale by the railway. Please note that the sale does not include gateposts, it is purely the wooden gates themselves.

    We have replaced 4 gates with 2 to make operating the crossing easier
    I think 10k to deliver means "buyer collects"

    I can see that would force them too, but why not just say buyer collects? Saying £10k might put people off

    Are they to a correct railway pattern? Just out of interest to be honest with you, if I could afford them I've nowhere to put them!

    I believe that they are of a railway style pattern, but I 'm no expert. Looked reasonably good when they were on the crossing anyway.
