by colliers catching a train at Penydarren Pits Platform.The train

 is heading towards Dowlais.On the left of the picture is the top of 

the Bogey Road (why was it called that?).Penydarren Pits were

 about 3/4 of a mile away in the valley leading to Bedlinog.

They produced coal for the Dowlais Works.
