The Cwmbargoed Collier, 5 February | Event in Banbury | AllEvents.in The Cwmbargoed Collier
SATURDAY 5 FEBRUARY 2022 – THE CWMBARGOED COLLIER

A VISIT TO FREIGHT LINES IN SOUTH WALES, INCLUDING ONE OF THE LAST CHANCES TO TRAVERSE THE LINE TO CWMBARGOED COLLIERY.

A classic railtour featuring a lengthy freight only branch, freight loops, spurs and sidings, with freight power throughout.

From joining points Banbury to Newport in the care of a Class 66, the requested route is via the Leckwith Loop to an optional 90 minute break at Bridgend. A Class 60 will then attach at the rear. After the break the route is via the scenic Vale of Glamorgan line to Barry, back through Cardiff and onto the Rhymney Valley line through Caerphilly to Ystrad Mynach.

Long stretches of 1 in 40 grades lead to the 1250 ft summit at the end of line at Cwmbargoed, where a backshunt reaches the loading point for Ffos-y-Fran Opencast coal site, whose extraction license ends in October this year to leave the line then redundant. Back down at sea level we visit the Barry Docks branch, with other snippets of ‘rare’ track before (and after!) the Class 60 is detached in the Cardiff area.

REQUESTED ROUTE (Subject to availability): As per the joining stations to Cheltenham Spa, then Gloucester Up Main – Lydney Down Goods Loop – Severn Tunnel Junction Down Relief – Newport – Cardff Central Line D – Leckwith Loop – Bridgend – Aberthaw – Up Cogan Loop – Cardiff Central – Caerphilly – Ystrad Mynach – Cwmbargoed – Ystrad Mynach Down Rhymney Loop – Cardiff Central – Cadoxton – Barry Docks Low Level Line No.1 (NR Limit) – Penarth Curve South Jn – Ninian Park – Cardiff Central Line C – Pengam Sidings – Newport – Lydney Up Goods Loop – Gloucester Up Relief – Gloucester Up Goods – Cheltenham Spa.
