My father Hywel Williams was fireman on this line from around the mid 1940s until it was decomissioned in 1965. I wondered if he might just be on the footplate when this photograph was taken.

My uncle Emlyn Rees was a relief signalman who used to work the box shown in photo in G149038. He lived in Hendy, about 2 hours travel time from Glynneath. My father (his brother) used to take to visit and my uncle used to let me pull the levers, a big  thrill as a ten year old. We lived in Rhigos, the next village up the line. Robert Rees
