The two centre tracks in this north-looking view of Bargoed station were originally the Rhymney Railway's main line from Cardiff to Rhymney. In this view of 18th April 1962, GW 0-6-0PT No.3706 is seen taking water on the left, at the head of a Newport to Brecon through train. GW 0-6-2T No.5601 is seen, right, with a sister engine standing centre. The engines face in the uphill direction, as did all the valley's locomotives, in order to ensure a propoer cover of water over the firebox when climbing the many steep gradients.
