The Pantywaun Mineral Railway
The Pantywaun Mineral Railway was connected to the Brecon and Merthyr Railway at a junction to the south of Pantywaun Railway (operational on OS 1884 but shown as a siding on OS 1901 2nd Edition) which was known as Pantywaun Junction.
The Pantywaun Mineral Railway initially ran from the Pantywaun mining complex to Dowlais and also ran south on the western edge of Rhas Las pond, which was constructed in 1818 (OS 1884). However, on OS 1901 2nd Edition, it is shown connected to the Tunnel and Fochriw collieries.
