(1) Route confirmation required. John Godfrey comments: This tour started from Cardiff, worked to Newport, then visited Hafodyrynys, Blaenavon Furnace Sdgs, and Glascoed R.O.D. (where they weren't expecting us and the train was surrounded by armed soldiers!). There was also a trip over the steeply-graded NCB line from Abersychan & Talywain to Blaenersychan colliery in NCB vehicles converted from 10-foot wheelbase freight vans and worked by an industrial Andrew-Barclay 0-6-0 tank loco.
