passing through Cwmdu Farm

This winter scene is a bit of a nostalgic trip for me. The scene is set in 1964 with Cwmdu farm on the left. It captures the Brecon bound steam train passing through to Maesycwmmer station. How things have changed - Later views can be seen in my Cumdu Gallery.
Our valley was lucky in those days to have two lines- one on each side of the Valley. The East side had the Newport to Brecon line (long gone) whilst the West side of the valley has the Cardiff to Rhymney line - still with us. Not forgetting the Neath to Pontypool line which used Hengoed high level and the viaduct

My thanks to Mr D O Packer of Ystrad Mynach for lending his details of this view. These details are not readily available, without his help this painting would not have been done.
