Taff Vale Railway Miscellany
- Taff Vale Railway Miscellany
- The Taff Vale Railway became one of the most prosperous railways in Britain. The main line ran from Cardiff Docks to Merthyr, a distance of 24 miles but from this there were no less than 23 branch lines. These served the collieries in the South Wales valleys, and at one time trains passed through Pontypridd Junction about every two minutes.
- Together with the other independent South Wales railways the TVR was absorbed by the Great Western in 1922. It had always had a close affinity with the GWR having been engineered by the same brilliant engineer, Isambard K.Brunel.
- This album, the lates in the long estabilished Miscellany series, includes many rare illustrations collected over a number of years from a wide variety of sources.
- The former headquarters of the railway at Bute Road, Cardiff is now the home of the Wales Railway Centre which is (1988) destined to become a major railway preservation project.
