Swansea Victoria to Pontardulais in 1964

Click on the photograph above to go to the British Film Institute site and a film of the line from Swansea Victoria to Pontardulais shot in June 1964, the same month it closed. There is a commentary, but it is very muffled.

Swansea Victoria is long gone, but Pontarddulais (as it is now called) is still open as a stop on the Heart of Wales line.

Spectators at the open end of the old Vetch Field (Swansea Town & City's football ground) used to stand on a terrace constructed from railway sleepers which I believe were from the old Midland line through Swansea.
