Although the Neath and Brecon Railway hasn't carried any passengers since 1962, the southern section of the line, as far as Onllwyn in the upper Dulais Valley, is still in use by trains which transport coal from the Onllwyn Washery to industial customers in South Wales. Here, an EWS class 66 loco heads a northbound train of empties.
