Ex-Cardiff Railway 0-6-2T No 155 at Portobello Quarry
[Pic: I L Wright]

Ex-Cardiff Railway 0-6-2T No 155 rumbles past Portobello Quarry with a short freight train headed for Nantgarw.

Tongynlais station, 1950

Tongwynlais station is slowly reclaimed by nature.

Castell Coch tunnel, Cardiff railway, 1952
[Pic: unknown]
North of Tongwynlais, the line went through a short tunnel close to Castell Coch. In this trackless 1952 view, you can just make out the '1908' date on the tunnel keystone. The tunnel has now been lost under the A470 interchange at Taff's Well.

Glan y Llyn Station, circa 1950.


Brige over the Glamorgan Canal, Cardiff Railway
[Pic: I L Wright]

Rhymney 0-6-2 tank No.41 steams across the bridge over the Glamorgan Canal with coal for Nantgarw coke ovens, January 1952.

With a new connection to Nantgarw being put in at Taffs Well, time was running out for this remaining stretch of the Cardiff Railway, and the section between Coryton and Glanyllyn was soon abandoned for ever.
