Welsh Valleys

Pontypool to Mountain Ash

by Vic Mitchell & Keith Smith

The eastern half of the Vale of Neath line served numerous collieries and crossed several valleys on notable viaducts. These are all illustrated, along with the GWR trains which continued to grace this scenic route long after nationalisation.
