constructed so as to stand normally open for the up line, instead of, as would be usually the case, standing open for the down line.

The only requirements that I noticed are 1) that No 10 down starter signal should be interlocked with No 3 up starter signal and (2) that No 7 balanced siding points should be provided with a loose hand lever which should be kept in the signal cabin.

Subject to these requirements being carried out within a fortnight, I can add the other arrangements are satisfactory

Recommended to the Boards of Trade to sanction the use of the alterations at Fochriw Station.

I have the honour to be

Your obedient servant

“Merthyr Express” 20 August 1887
Vochriw: New Station  The Brecon and Merthyr Railway Company have built a new station in this place which was greatly needed.
“Merthyr Express” 24 February 1906
Gelligaer Parish Council: Motor Car Service   On the motion of Mr. Tom Kinsey, it was decided to appeal to the local railway companies in the parish of Gelligaer, to adopt the motor car service between Hengoed Junction, Darran and Fochirw, as such a services would be of great benefit to the whole of the parishioners.
1 December 1934   Train Facilities   The public of Fochriw will be pleased to know of the additional train facilities commencing forthwith. Accommodation for the general public will be provided in the workmen’s trains between Bargoed and Dowlais Top. This will be a great convenience, a good service of trains being available.

27 December 1941   Pantywaun Halt   The dream of many long years became a reality on Monday last with the opening of a railway halt at Pantywaun. This will be a great boon to the inhabitants. Efforts have been made for many years to bring this about, the matter being again taken up with the Ministry by Mr. Ness Edwards, M.P. Another advantage that Pantywaun would be enjoying now if not for the war would be the installation of electric light by the Gellygaer Council.

27 November 1948    New Stationmaster    A welcome is accorded to Mr. A. G. Boobyer, the newly appointed stationmaster of Fochriw. He is the son of the late Mr. E.G. Boobyer, who was for many years, stationmaster at Bargoed. Mr. T. Evans, former stationmaster at Fochriw, has been promoted stationmaster at Deri.
