A detailed examination of this short Rhymney Railway branchline from inception, through initial success to ultimate demise. Built to provide an outlet for the coal mines in the valley, it started to suffer after the closure of the colliery at Senghenydd, which never really recovered from the two pit disasters which struck it.

This book is fully illustrated with many fine photographs, signalling and track diagrams, and is a worthy addition to any bookshelf.

At Branchstow Books, we specialise in railway publications. Our particular emphasis is to champion high quality railway books from individual authors and small independent publishers. With this approach, we offer books that are not widely available, and carefully select only the finest books to the extent that each one comes with our recommendation.
