Little remains of it today, but the Swansea Vale Railway was a major factor in the life of the Swansea Valley, Cwmtwrch and Brynamman for well over 100 years. Originally an independent concern, it was taken over by the Midland Railway and hence linked through to the rest of the Midland Railway via Brecon. This well illustrated book is an enlarged version of an earlier volume published in 2004.

Following nationalisation in 1948, British railways closed many branch lines and reduced the number of stations on the network. In January 1978, there were 2,358 and by January 2018 2,560. The object of this book is to record those stations that are re-opened or are new stations to the system.
