View NE, actually slightly NW of the station site. The ex-Midland Swansea Valley line at Clydach South station from Swansea St Thomas to Glais, Pontardawe/Brynamman - Ystalyfera - Colbren Junction and Brecon. The station was closed to passengers 25/9/50, but the line was closed from Colbren Junction in 9/32, so cutting off the Midland route via Brecon over the Neath & Brecon Railway. This left the traffic from Brynamman via Pontardawe, which lasted until 25/9/50 for passengers, 12/7/65 for goods. 'South' was added to the name only in 1/50, 'North' being on the goods-only branch of the GWR.
