Originally known as the Hengoed and Maesycwmmer station this view from 1964 shows the arrival of the Pontypool bound steam train, number 80133. The bridge over Hengoed low level station can be seen at the rear of the platform and beyond that Park Road can be seen alongside the track. The station closed in 1964 and left derelect for a number of years. The station now forms part of the national cycle track and takes you over Hengoed Viaduct.
As a family we used the low level station quite a lot but I never ventured up to the high level station so it is pleasing for me to have done this. If you have any history on this station and would like to share it please let me know and I will add it to this page.

My thanks to the late Mr D O Packer of Ystrad Mynach for digging out and lending me details of the station.
