A plaque dedicated to Carmarthen railway workers who died in World War One has been unveiled.
Train driver Simon Biggs has spent the last five months researching the names and history of the men killed in the war.
The names of eight depot workers are featured, including brothers Fred and William Tansill from the town.
Relatives of some of the men attended a special service at Carmarthen railway station on Sunday.
With the help of local historian and writer Steven John, Mr Biggs, 45, of Carmarthen, wanted to emulate similar plaques to rail workers at London Paddington and Crewe stations.
