After traveling for about two miles on the Brecon Mountain Railway, the Taf Fechan Reservoir comes into view with the Brecon Becons in the background.

The Brecon Mountain Railway travels 3½ miles from Pant Terminus to the end of Taf Fechan Reservoir at Dolygaer. In 2007 it was not possible to alight at Dolygaer and the train returns for 1¾ miles to Pontsticill Station. At Pontsticill Station there is a stop to allow time to alight and see the views across Taf Fechan Reservoir.
