Morlais Tunnel Junction

The Opening of the Morlais Tunnel (Miler Tunnel) Contractors and Staff pose for the photograph at the Pant portal.


The Brecon & Merthyr  train is travelling from Pontsticill towards Merthyr and is about to join 

the L.N.W.R (later L.M.S) line at the 'miler'  tunnel which is the route to Dowlais, Rhymney Bridge 

and eventually Abergavenny. It will then travel over the 7 arch viaduct at Pontsarn , the 15 arch

 one at Cefn Coed through Heolgerrig and finally round Rhydycar before reaching Merthyr Station.
