This book is a fascinating collection of over 100 black and white photographs showing the railways of Glamorgan in South Wales in decades gone by, providing a fascinating pictorial record of the area's railway lines and stations that have long since dissapeared. The book is packed with lots of black and white photographs showing the long lost stations and their trains...
Although the Great Western Railway came to dominate the county in pre-Grouping days, the LNWR and the Midland also made inroads. Additionally some smaller independent companies were operating such as the Taff Vale Railway and the Swansea & Mumbles Railway. This makes for a rich and interesting history, told in this large format book with 175 period photos of now closed stations. There are way too many to list here but some are Crynant, Cowbridge, Creigiau, Llantwit Major, Fochriw, Rhydyfelin, Mountain Ash, Swansea East Dock, Swansea Victoria, Dowlais High Street, Pontrhydyfen, Bedlinog, Mumbles Pier, Barry Pier and many more...
