Just wondering, might this be easier to understand if we referred to the Up or Down ends? The terms North and South in particular are subject to different usages. I agree Bwlch y Plwm is at the north-west or Down end and I presume Catherine & Jane is the shaft at the south-eastern or Up end that we used to chuck dead sheep down. But in other places, where the FR pursues a southwesterly course as at Gwyndy Bank, north is Up and so on. Not everyone has the OS map open in front of them all the time. What does everyone think?

Personally, I would go compass directions, although this is dependant on "user" having a map to hand. Alternatively, and generally, using only the 3 terminii (Port, BFf, Caern) as directions. The idea of using "Up" and "Down" can lead to confusion - even amongst rail enthusiasts, so Joe Public has no chance!!! --Keith (talk) 18:48, 29 December 2010 (UTC)
