When I put “to be continued” at the bottom of my page about the Cardiff Railway, I hadn’t meant to leave it 8 years to continue, but I’ve now added a few more photos through Taffs Well and incorporated links to the videos shown below into the article.
This was prompted by my travelling past the never connected endpoint of the line near Treforest the other day. The earthworks there still seem to be in place, still unused after more than 100 years. Read the article and find out why…
In November I made a couple of quick videos:
One is a ride by of Glan-y-Llyn Station – and shows that the station building and one platform face are still clearly still there
The other (hopefully) shows how the landscape around the railway’s crossing of the Glamorganshire canal has been dramatically altered by the arrival of new roads, whilst retaining quite a lot of the original infrastructure.
In March, I created some maps of the route of the line and added some additional words to the main article.
