Pontsarn Station

Although a very small station Pontsarn handled tens of thousands of passengers

 during the summer months. It was THE place to go ,away from the grime and smoke 

down in Merthyr. All the Chapels and Sunday Schools went to Pontsarn for the annual

outing. Special facilities were provided in the large field above the station and

 opposite the Pontsarn Hotel.It is still used to this day for family picnics but

 everyone goes by car, not train.
