According to Rear and Williams "The Cambrian Coast Railway" isbn 1-870119-03-7 Photos 15-17 and text the "lean to" cubicle by which the railwayman is standing was for staff use. In the early days the halt was staffed for part of the day in high summer. This photo suggests the early days lasted until the diesel age, ie mid 1960s on the Cambrian Coast.
